So here are my first pictures of taken in manual mode on my new camera. Not a professional yet, but I’m starting to interpret the ISO and aperture to get the exposure I want. Fun stuff!

Back to this amazing cornbread with maple butter, which is why I’m sure you’re here. The inspiration for it came last weekend, after a several mile hike which included several thousand stairs. (See my previous post here for more about that.) That kind of a hike builds an appetite. On the way home, Tyler and I stopped at Smokey Bones to enjoy some ribs where they served us an amazing appetizer of cornbread and maple butter. That was the best cornbread and butter I have ever had. Maybe it was just because we were starving, but it was gone in less than two minutes from the time it hit the table. The whole time I was eating it, it was screaming to be recreated in my kitchen.Corn Bread with Whipped Maple Pecan Butter. A classic, slightly sweet cornbread topped with fluffy maple, pecan butter.

So here is my version which Tyler claims to be better than the restaurants. Maybe it was because I left the pecans out of his portion though. The cornbread is a classic cornbread recipe adapted from Like Mother Like Daughter Food. The recipe is simple and makes a wonderfully fluffy cornbread with a tender crumb. The butter is a recreation of those wonderful flavors swirling in my head.

Prep Time: 30 mins
Cook Time: 25 mins
Total Time: 55 mins
Cuisine: American

Ingredients 

For the Cornbread

  • 2/3 cup butter softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 2/3 cups milk
  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

For the Maple Pecan Butter

  • 1 stick of butter softened
  • 2 T maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp molasses
  • 3 T finely chopped pecans

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease a 12 inch round cast iron skillet. Or a regular old 9 x 13 pan would work, but it lacks the charm.
  • In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar together until smooth. Beat in eggs.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, corn meal, baking powder and salt.
  • Alternately whisk in a third of the flour mixture with a third of the milk until combined. Pour into greased pan and bake for 23-25 minutes.
  • To make the maple pecan butter, whip the butter with a mixer until fluffy. Add the maple syrup and molasses and beat for another minute. Gently stir in pecans.
  • Serve the cornbread warm with a generous amount of butter.
