  • 1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup white wholewheat flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1 14.5 oz can (415g) creamed corn


  • Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees
  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan and set aside
  • Combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, coconut sugar, and cayenne pepper in a large mixing bowl
  • In a separate bowl, gently beat the eggs. Add in the butter (which should now have cooled), the honey and the milk. Add to the dry ingredients and mix well
  • Fold in the creamed corn and let the whole thing rest at room temperature for about 10 mins
  • Over a medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet. When it is melted, pour in the batter and pop the whole thing into the oven
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven, and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Slice and enjoy



Let this rest for 10 minutes once it comes out of the oven. If you don't, it will fall apart and you will not be happy!
