This recipe is courtesy of King Arthur Flour.


  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 1/4 Cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 Cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8”x8” square, or 9” round baking pan.

In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt until well combined.

In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, maple syrup, melted butter, and eggs. Add to the dry ingredients. Stir until just moistened.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until lightly golden, and a cocktail stick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
