Sweet Cornbread

    Cornbread, Hoppin' John and greens are a mandatory meal in my house New Year's Day.  My Hoppin John recipe is spicy, so I like a sweet cornbread with the meal.  This is my standby recipe for sweet cornbread.

    Sweet Cornbread


    1/2 cup butter
      2 eggs
        2/3 cup white sugar
          1 cup buttermilk
            1/2 teaspoon baking soda
              1 cup cornmeal
                1 cup all-purpose flour
                  1/2 teaspoon salt


                  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (175 degrees C).
                    Melt the butter in an 9 inch square pan, or a 10 inch cast iron skillet, in the oven as it preheats.
                      Beat the eggs, then stir in sugar and buttermilk. Mix the cornmeal, flour, soda, and salt until well blended in a separate bowl.
                        Combine the melted butter with the liquids and stir, then pour them into the dry ingredients.  Stir until just combined.  Do not over mix.   Pour batter into the prepared pan.
                          Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
