1 Comments

I always gets lots of email requests for my cornbread recipe (its in my cook book – www.famousdavescookbook.com) – and yes the cornbread in the restaurants is mouth-watering, but what I make at home for my family is even better!

Dave’s Famous Honey Buttered
Buttermilk Corn Bread
(home version)

2/3 cups  All Purpose Flour
2/3 cups  Jiffy Yellow Cake Mix*
2/3 cups  Yellow Corn Meal
1/4 cup  Light Brown Sugar Packed
2 teas   Baking Powder
1 teas   Salt

1 cup   Buttermilk
1/4   Oil
1   Egg Beaten
1/3 cup  Hellman’s Mayonnaise

1/4 cup  Clover Honey
1/2 cup  Melted Butter

* If you can’t find Jiffy Yellow Cake Mix…use the cheapest possible… they seem to work better for cornbread!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

9 inch cake pan greased with butter

Mix all the dry ingredients together.

Pour the wet ingredients together but do not mix. Add the 1/3 cup Hellman’s Mayo to the rest of the wet ingredients and then mix slightly just enough to slightly blend together.

Pour Wet ingredients into dry mixture and lightly blend together… do not over mix …blend just enough until the dry ingredients are wet.

Whip somewhat soft room temperature butter with honey.

Pour into greased cake pan and then bake for 25 minutes until top is golden brown and the center is somewhat firm and a knife when inserted is clean when removed.

Immediately after removing from oven brush tops with Honey Butter… serve warm.
