This is a delicious sweetened cornbread made with yogurt instead of the classic buttermilk. Melted butter and maple syrup or honey add flavor to the cornbread. Serve this cornbread with beans, greens, or a bowl of chili.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (or honey)
  • 3 large eggs

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 375 F.

  2. Grease and flour a 9-inch round baking pan.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the meal, flour, baking powder, soda, and salt.

  4. In another bowl, whisk together the yogurt, butter, syrup or honey, and eggs. Combine the two mixtures and stir until blended. Spread the batter in the prepared baking pan.

  5. Bake for 25 minutes, or until firm and lightly browned.
