Homesteader Cornbread & Honey butter

There is nothing worse that dry cornbread so I was so happy to find this recipe! Its nice and moist and it can easily be cut in half and done in a 9x9 pan.

1 ½ c cornmeal
2 ½ c milk
1 tsp salt
2/3 c sugar

2 c flour
2 eggs
1 Tbsp baking powder
½ c oil

In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. In a small bowl combine cornmeal and milk, let stand for 5 minutes then add eggs and oil and mix until smooth. Add to dry ingredients and pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 400° for 30 min or until done.

Honey Butter

Let butter soften on counter and then mix equal parts honey with the butter until smooth. This can be kept in the pantry so we like to make about 1/2 cup and store it for the future. You do have to mix it a little when you go to use it again because it will start to separate.
