Notes: For bread that is sweeter and more tender, use the largest measure of sugar.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, beat eggs to blend with buttermilk and 1/4 cup butter. Pour liquids into flour mixture and stir just until evenly moistened.

Step 2

Scrape batter into a buttered 8-inch square pan and spread smooth.

Step 3

Bake in a 400° oven until bread springs back when lightly pressed in the center and begins to pull from pan sides, about 25 minutes (20 minutes in a convection oven).

Step 4

Cut bread into squares. Lift from pan with a slender spatula. Serve hot or cool.

Made this for friends and everyone ate it, but I thought it was too tangy from the buttermilk. My husband said it tasted tart or sour. He's a big cornbread fan and asked not to have this same recipe again. I used 1/4 C sugar and didn't find it too sweet.
