Prep Time: 18 minutes / Cook Time: 25 minutes / Yields: 12 servings

Step 1

Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease your pan with a little butter or cooking spray and set them aside.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, cornmeal, Domino® Granulated Sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well mixed.

Step 3

In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk and melted butter. Mix until the wet ingredients are well combined, and the mixture is smooth.

Step 4

Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.

Step 5

Carefully pour the cornbread batter into the greased pan, filling about 2/3 full. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the cornbread turns golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean

Step 6

Text: Allow the cornbread to cool for a few minutes, then gently remove it and cut into squares.

For the Sweet Butter

Step 1

Combine all of the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Mix the butter using a hand mixer or stand mixer until the butter is smooth and the ingredients are mixed in very well. This will take about 2-3 minutes. Serve the cornbread with a dollop of sweet butter.
