It’s almost time for New Years! You know what that means, right? Yup. Time for your healthy lucky serving of black-eyed peas and cornbread. But this year, whip up something that you don’t even need to add butter or honey to. Sounds perfect, right? It is.
Another great thing about this recipe is that you don’t need a cast-iron skillet! If you have one, though, that’s great. If you don’t, you need a metal baking dish.
2 tbsp butter
1 c flour
1 c yellow cornmeal
1/4 c sugar
1 tsp salt
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 c low-fat milk
1 egg, beaten
1/3 c oil
2 tbsp honey
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Place the butter in a metal baking dish (or cast iron skillet) and heat in the oven while making the batter.
3. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Pour the oil and honey into a small bowl and mix together. Add the milk and beaten egg to the oil mixture. Pour the oil mixture into the dry mixture and mix until just combined.
4. Bake for 20 minutes, the edges will be a golden brown.
