  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter melted extra for greasing the pan
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1 cup buttermilk or make your own buttermilk substitute
  • cup ┬╝maple syrup
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease an 8-inch square pan or 9-inch round baking pan with butter.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt and whisk together until thoroughly combined.
  3. Break the eggs into a large measuring cup and beat them with a whisk. Add the buttermilk, maple syrup, and melted butter to the eggs and whisk until uniform.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and stir to combine with just a few strokes. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the cornbread is lightly browned, pulling away from the sides of the pan, and a cake tester or butter knife comes out clean when inserted into the center.
