Cooking for 6 people


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 0.6 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3.5 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large jalapeño (chopped)
  • 2 sticks butter (melted)
  • 0.25 cup honey
  • splash of bourbon (optional)

1 Food Prep

Combine all of your dry cornbread ingredients into a large mixing bowl. We recommend sifting the dry ingredients for a smoother batter.

Then, add all of your wet ingredients to the bowl and mix them together until they’re evenly combined. Pour your batter into a greased cast-iron skillet.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Original Charcoal Briquets

Method: Direct-Heat Grilling

Temp: 400°F (Medium Heat)

3 The Cook

  • When your grill reaches 400ºF, place your skillet with the batter on the middle rack of the grill if possible to allow for even air flow and close the lid. Bake for 25 minutes at 400°F.
  • While your cornbread is baking, make the honey butter by whisking together the following ingredients: 2 sticks of butter (melted), ¼ cup of honey and a splash of bourbon (optional).
  • Remove your cornbread from the grill once it has a golden brown exterior.
  • Drizzle on the honey butter, slice and serve!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It freezes well too! I don't have bourbon in the house and for one person it makes a lot, so I recommend freezing some in air-tight container for future eating. Love the kick of jalapeno and combo of cornbread-great flavor

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cornbread Ever This recipe is PERFECT. It's easy and so tasty. I'd never baked my cornbread on the grill before, but I will definitely be doing it often. It's hard to stop eating this cornbread!
