Cornbread Ingredients:

½ cup all-purpose flour

1 cup yellow cornmeal

½ teaspoon baking soda

¾ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

2 eggs

½ cup milk

1 cup buttermilk

1 tablespoon mild honey

2 to 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (to taste)

Stuffing Ingredients:

4 stalks celery, cut into small pieces

1 large onion, finely chopped

Salt to taste

Freshly ground pepper

4 garlic cloves, minced


½ cup milk

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, or 1 tablespoon each olive oil and unsalted butter (4 extra tablespoons if baking extra)

Start by making the cornbread. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and prepare two baking pans. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. In a separate, smaller bowl, combine the eggs, buttermilk, and honey, until smooth. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until a batter is formed. Put them in the baking pans and bake for about 40 minutes.

Let the bread cool, and start on the stuffing. Cook the onion in a skillet with the butter. Next, add in the salt, garlic, and the celery. Break up the cornbread into pieces, and add them to a large bowl. Pour the contents of the skillet over the cornbread, and mix with the milk and any other remaining ingredients. Transfer the stuffing to a baking dish, cover and bake at 325 degrees for about a half hour.
