Golden Sweet Cornbread is a classic comfort food known for its moist texture and sweet flavor. This delightful bread pairs perfectly with chili, soups, or can be enjoyed on its own as a snack.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Optional: 1/4 cup honey for extra sweetness


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease an 8×8 inch baking dish or a 12-cup muffin tin.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together until well mixed.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, and melted butter. If using honey, add it to the wet ingredients.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined and the batter is smooth. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish or divide it evenly among the muffin cups.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes if using a baking dish, or 15-20 minutes if making muffins, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with few crumbs.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly in the pan.
  8. Serve the cornbread warm. It can be enjoyed with butter, drizzled with honey, or as a side to your favorite meals.
