cornbread. with brown sugar and honey!

I really like cornbread. I like it warmed with butter just dripping off the sides of it, I do. Who wouldn't? A few weeks back when I was in the kitchen, which I rarely am, I decided I wanted to make this as well. With my cute little helper. 

I used this recipe, just without the buttermilk. 

1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 egg, at room temperature
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease and lightly flour an 8 inch square baking pan.

Whisk together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. 
In another smaller bowl, whisk the butter, brown sugar and honey together until smooth. Then add egg until combined, then milk. 
Add the wet to the dry and mix until combined.
Pour into aforementioned baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes.
The entire dish was eaten by the end of the night. You put cornbread in front of me and forget it. It's all over.
