Cornbread is perfect alongside hearty soups like chili, slathered with butter, or drizzled with honey. Using spelt flour and buttermilk as well as cornmeal makes it extra delicious.

Step 1: You'll Need. . .

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup cornmeal (stoneground if you have access to it)
  • 3/4 cup spelt flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk (if you don't have buttermilk, you can substitute 1 1/2 cups milk  (whole or 2% milk fat) combined with 1 1/2 tablespoon white vinegar)
  • 1 large egg
  • Oil or butter to grease pan(s)
  • 8 or 9 inch cast iron skillet (if you'd rather, you can use another cast iron or other heavy bottomed pan. Corn-shaped pans like shown here are awesome, but make sure to grease them very well)
  • Large bowl
  • Measuring cups and spoons
