1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/3 cup yellow or white corn meal
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs, beaten


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Butter or oil a 9" baking pan, set aside.

Sift flour, corn meal, baking soda, baking powder and salt together. Whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter and the eggs. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid and stir just to blend.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until golden brown around the edges, about 30 minutes or until tester inserted into the middle of the bread comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a rack for a few minutes then cut into squares. Freezes well, just wrap in foil then put into a freezer bag.

cook's notes

I don't see why you could not make a mix of the dry ingredients and then just take what you need and add the liquids to it when needed. It seems that you would need to take about 2 cups of the mix then add the liquid. Just a thought.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I didn't have any buttermilk or butter in the fridge, so I substituted 1 1/3 cup organic sour cream and 1/2 cup organic milk. I used coarse cornmeal because I wanted more texture in my bread. I also don't have a 9 x 9" pan so I put it in a loaf pan and baked for an additional 10 minutes. Turned out absolutely perfect! Thank you!

I just tried this recipe. It is in the oven now. Don't make the stupid mistake I made. I melted the butter in the microwave and forgot to use it in the recipe!!! Yea I know, kinda dumb. My wife was asleep and I thought I would be sweet and clever. I hope it turns out ok without the butter. I will probably tell my wife the recipe did not call for butter. Yea, that's exactly what I'll do!! What would you do?
