Buttered and hot, this is a delicious snack or meal accompaniment. Try it. It works. A very satisfying comfort food. My family is all about comfort foods.
2 cups cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
4 eggs, room temperature
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup honey
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice.
In a separate, medium bowl, whisk together the mashed sweet potatoes, eggs, buttermilk, honey and butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir until just combined.
Pour the batter into a cast-iron skillet; use a spatula to smooth to an even layer if needed. Place in the oven and bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Serve the cornbread in the skillet. It stays hot and moist that way and looks good. Enjoy
