Created for Cornbread is King challenge in the Culinary Quest 2014. Really, what did you think I would make?? ;) I looked at many different cornbread recipes, mixed & matched what I wanted for basic ingredients then put my North African/Middle Eastern spin on it. It worked BRILLIANTLY. I've never been so pleased with the results of a concocted recipe. Enjoy!

How to Make NA/ME Inspired Cornbread


  • 1Preheat oven to 375F. Place 10" cast iron skillet in oven to preheat as well.
  • 2Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Stir well with a whisk.
  • 3Combine wet ingredients in a smaller bowl. Stir *very* well with the same whisk. You want the eggs to be beaten well & the lemon to be well distributed.
  • 4Bring pan out of oven. Spray heavily with oil.
  • 5Quickly combine wet & dry ingredients. Fold & mix gently but thoroughly. Don't over mix.
  • 6Pour into skillet, smooth top & bake for 30 -35 minutes until lightly browned on top & edges pull away from skillet just a weeee bit.
  • 7While it's baking, combine the softened butter with the honey thoroughly & refrigerate.
  • 8When cornbread is done, allow it to cool for a few minutes before slathering with the honey butter.
