- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/3 c. sugar
- 1 c. well-shaken buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and grease an 8-inch square or round baking pan.
Mix dry ingredients
Mix together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar.
Whisk the buttermilk
In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, and butter.
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and mix until the batter is moist and lumpy.
Pour the batter into the pan and bake it until the toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
Let it cool about 10 minutes before removing it from the pan and letting it cool completely on a rack.
