Step 1

Preheat oven to 400F.

Step 2

Place a  9-10″ cast iron skillet in the oven. (If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet a round cake pan will do or an 8×8 baking dish.

Step 3

Whisk together cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Step 4

After at least 8 minutes remove the skillet from oven and put the butter in the hot skillet, stir around until it melts.  Pour melted butter into a medium bowl, leaving the skillet buttered and warm.  This makes a nice crust on your cornbread.

Step 5

Along with the melted butter, whisk in honey, buttermilk and eggs.  Fully mix.

Step 6

Pour flour mixture into the wet ingredients and gently mix until just combined.

Step 7

Pour into the buttered skillet, spreading out evenly.

Step 8

Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.  The cornbread is done when the edges begin to pull away from the side of the pan and the center is slightly puffed up.
