  • 2

    c. yellow cornmeal

  • ½

    c. flour

  • ½

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • c. buttermilk

  • 1

    large egg

  • c. butter, melted - plus extra for top of loaf


Preheat oven to 425ºC, and butter an 8x8 glass baking dish. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix together with a whisk. Add the buttermilk, egg, and melted butter, then mix until combined. Pour into the glass baking dish and place into the middle of the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a crust begins to form on top. Pull the cornbread out of the oven and brush the top with a stick of butter. Allow to cool for 15 minutes, then turn upside-down to dislodge the cornbread. Cut and serve warm.
