Directions for Manuka Honey Cornbread
- Prep Time: 5 minutes. Cook Time: 25 minutes. Total Time: 30 minutes.
- Before you begin, make sure that you have an oven rack at about the middle of your oven. Preheat the oven on the Bake setting to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Spray an 8×8-inch square pan (or round cake tin) with cooking spray. You could use butter instead if you prefer to add the extra flavor.
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the Manuka honey, the buttermilk, the butter, and the eggs together until the honey has fully incorporated with the mixture.
- In a larger bowl, whisk the flour, the cornmeal, the baking soda, the baking powder, and the salt together.
- Now, pour the wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and mix them together thoroughly.
- Pour the batter into your ready pan, and then bake between 25 and 30 minutes or until it is golden brown in color. Allow the cornbread to cool in the pan for about five minutes before serving. You should have about eight servings, each of which is about 290 calories.
