Number of Servings: 8


    1/2 c whole wheat flour
    1/2 c corn meal
    1/8 c sugar
    2 t baking powder
    1/2 t salt
    1 T honey
    1 lg egg
    1/2 c milk (I use 2%)
    1/8 canola oil


Preheat oven to 425. Add oil to a loaf or pie pan. Place in heated oven while you prepare the bread or about 10 minutes.
Combine the dry ingredients. Mix until homogenous. Add egg and honey and stir. Finally add the milk, maybe not quite 1/2 cup but enough to make like a slightly runny batter.
Remove pan from the oven and add about 1/2 of the hot oil to the batter. It should be hot enough to sizzle and almost make a crust on the top. Stir batter to incorporate the oil then add mixture to prepared pan. The remaining hot oil makes the edges curl and gives you a nice crispy edge.
Bake in the hot oven for about 15 minutes or the center springs back. (because of the wheat it will be kinda dark)

  • This is so good! I made with white flour and subbed unsweetened applesauce and issued the MAKEOVER so I could calculate correctly - saved 25 calories. Thank you for a great recipe! Who knew cornbread at less than 100 calories per slice? :) - 9/23/14

  • I have been looking for a really good cornbread recipes for what seems like ages. I have finally found it. Cornbread is typically dry and while this isn't melt in your mouth moist it moist. It is also perfectly sweet. I did exchange the sugar for Truvia. - 5/30/11

  • You mention egg in the directions but not in the ingredient list. I am assuming it is 1 egg? - 10/4/10
