We make chili quite often around here, and my favorite accompaniment is cornbread. The flavor and texture of this cornbread are wonderful, and with a little extra honey you can even serve it as a sweet snack. It helps to stretch the meal when you have a hesitant eater or an extra-hungry spouse at the table.
I use whole grain, non-GMO cornmeal and a handful of other real food ingredients to put together this delicious bread. At $.14 per piece, you can’t beat the price. This recipe is adapted from the Northern Cornbread recipe in the Joy of Cooking.
$.14 per serving
- 1 1/4 cups whole grain cornmeal
- 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 1 to 2 tbs honey
- 3 tbs melted butter
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and grease a 9 x 9 inch baking dish.
In a medium bowl, stir together the dry ingredients. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix the wet ingredients. Add the dry ingredients and stir to just combine.
Transfer the batter to the baking dish and bake for 18-20 minutes. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not over-bake or it will come out dry.
