  • 1 cup plain yellow corn meal
  • 1 cup corn flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour (affiliate link)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 tbsp. honey
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk (almond or soy milk work too)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup corn - optional (frozen, no sugar added)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix your dry ingredient together with a whisk.

  3. In a separate large mixing bowl, mix your wet ingredients, including the frozen corn.

  4. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just barely blended. Lumps are okay. Don't over mix.

  5. Scrape batter into baking dish and bake for 15 -20 minutes. If you think you need longer than 15 minutes, check it every minute thereafter, or you'll end up with burnt corn bread. If you like a lighter color on top, place a sheet of aluminum foil over the top for the last 5 minutes of baking.

  6. Corn bread is done baking when you can poke it with a toothpick and it comes out clean.

  7. Slice into 15 pieces, and serve while it's hot!
