Honey Butter Corn Bread

This was an easy cornbread to put together. With the honey butter poured over the top, you really don't need any added butter.

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for the pan
2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the milk, eggs, ½ cup of the honey, and ½ cup of the butter; whisk together the wet ingredients, then incorporate the dry ingredients until just combined (do not over mix).

3. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the remaining ¼ cup of butter and ¼ cup of honey After removing the corn bread from oven, brush with the honey butter mixture. Cool completely in the pan, then cut into pieces.
