New England Corn Bread

New England Corn Bread

New England style corn bread is generally sweeter and more moist than the hearty Southern variety. This version of the New England treat is mildly sweet and not too rich…in my opinion, a perfectly balanced corn bread.

Serves 6.


  • 1/2 c fine corn meal
  • 1 1/2 c all purpose flour
  • 1/3 c sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp lecithin granules
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/2 c plain yogurt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 c vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1 Tbsp honey


  1. Place oiled 10-inch cast iron skillet in oven. Preheat oven (and skillet) to 350 degrees F.
  2. In large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir with wooden spoon until just combined.
  4. Carefully remove hot skillet from stove and place on heat-proof surface. Pour in batter.
  5. Return skillet to oven and bake about 20 minutes, or until center is firm. Cool before cutting and serving.

I serve this moist corn bread with my Spicy Baked Pinto Beans for a fantastic and healthy lunch.
