Ben's Cornbread

I'm not sure where Ben got this recipe, but it is amazing.  Our ward has a chili and cornbread cook-off each fall, and Ben's cornbread won a couple of years ago.  It's moist and soooo delicious.

Ben's Cornbread


2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup cornmeal
2/3 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup vegetable oil (or grapeseed oil, if you have it)
1/4 cup melted butter
2 1/2 cup buttermilk

2 beaten eggs

Cinnamon Honey Butter:
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2.  Combine dry ingredients, mix well, and make a well in the center. Set aside.
3.  Beat together eggs, oil, butter, and milk.
4.  Pour into the well.  Stir just until dry bits are moistened.
5.  Pour into a sprayed or lightly buttered 9X13 pan.
6.  Bake 45 minutes.  Cover with foil for the last half hour.
7.  Serve with cinnamon honey butter.

To make up butter:
Combine butter, honey, and cinnamon.  Mix in mixer until light and fluffy.
