Ingredients for sweet cornbread

  • Unsalted Butter: I prefer to use unsalted butter in my recipes so that I can control the salt content in the recipe.
  • Sugar: White granulated sugar is used in this recipe, but you can always use half white and half brown sugar.
  • Eggs: Are used as a binding agent and also adds fluffiness to the cornbread.
  • Milk: I used 1% milk, but whole milk would also work.
  • All Purpose Flour: Is versatile and used most when baking.
  • Yellow Cornmeal: Cornmeal is used as a base in cornbread. I used Quaker Yellow Cornmeal in this recipe.
  • Baking Powder: Is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture in baked goods.
  • Salt: Using a small amount of salt will enhance the other flavors in the recipe.
  • Honey: Adding honey will add a touch of flavor and added sweetness.
