mixing bowls, measuring cup, measuring spoons, baking dish, whisk
- ⅔ cup Butter unsalted, softened
- ⅓ cup Granulated Sugar
- 1¾ cups Cornmeal
- 1½ cups All-purpose flour
- 4½ tsp Baking powder
- 3/4 tsp Salt
- ⅓ cup Honey
- 3 lg Eggs
- 1⅔ cups Buttermilk
- 1 cup Jalapenos chopped, add to taste
Preheat oven to 400° and grease a 9 x 9" baking dish. (can use a 9x13 but it will produce a thinner bread) Line bottom of the dish with parchment paper with 3" extensions on end for lift.
Beat butter and granulated sugar together in a large bowl until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt. In a third bowl stir together buttermilk, honey, and eggs. Add ½ of the milk mixture, then ½ of the dry mixture into the sugar/butter mixture, whisking after each addition. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients. Stir in the jalapenos to taste. Spread mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack for about 20 minutes before slicing.
