Whole Grain Corn Bread

I'd like to share this whole grain corn bread. I got this recipe from Natural Health Magazine. Whole grain corn flour and buttermilk make this rib-sticking corn bread and healthier choice than the starchy, fatty variety often served at holiday tables. Whole grain corn bread recipe is easy to prepare too.

Whole Grain Corn Bread


1 1/2 cups whole-grain corn flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 cups low-fat buttermilk
1/4 cup canola oil
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 400 F. Coat an 8-inch square pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine flours, baking powder, seasonings, and honey with a wire whisk. In a small bowl, combine remaining wet ingredients. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. 
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut into squares to serve.
