homemade buttermilk cornbread

This is a wonderful cornbread recipe that is moist and sweet. I came up with this recipe after experimenting with tons of other cornbread recipes.


  • 5 tablespoons butter divided
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 egglightly beaten


  • preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • add 4 tablespoons of the butter and oil to a round cake pan.  put in the oven to melt, about 3-5 minutes.
  • meanwhile, combine flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar and baking powder in a bowl.
  • gradually add milk and stir until just combined.
  • add egg; stir.
  • remove hot butter and oil from oven.  pour half of the butter/oil mixture into the cornbread batter and leave the rest in the pan.  carefully stir in the butter/oil mixture into batter.  pour the batter into the center of the pan, so the batter will push the remaining melted butter/oil mixture to the sides of the pan, which will make a crunchy crust!
  •  put in the preheated oven for 40 – 50 minutes or until lightly browned.  once out the oven, rub the top of the cornbread with the last tablespoon of butter.
