This is the best corn bread recipe I've made. It comes from an old cookbook published by the Northern Cherokee Nation. I grew up eating it with a drizzle of honey, but it's equally good served warm with butter!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

Total Time: 25-30 minutes

Source: The Northern Cherokee Cookbook (1997)


  • 2 1/2 cup yellow corn meal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup oil (vegetable or canola)


  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. I'd recommend sifting or whisking them together.

  3. Combine the oil and buttermilk into a separate bowl. Beat the eggs lightly and blend into the wet ingredients.
  4. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry, leaving a few small lumps. The batter will be thin.
  5. Pour into a greased and floured 9x13 inch pan and bake at 425 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, until slightly browned and a cake tester (or knife) comes out clean.
  6. Serve with butter, honey, or hot chili. :) Enjoy!
