Homemade Cornbread

For many years I've made cornbread from a box but recently I've been experimenting with some different recipes. I didn't like any of them for various reasons (too dry, not sweet enough) so I came up with my own. And you know how it goes around here, if my taste testers like it, you get to see it!
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup all purpose unbleached flour
1 T baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup milk (I used 1%)
1/2 cup plain yogurt (I used homemade yogurt with thick, Greek style texture)
1 egg
1/2 stick butter, melted
Whisk dry ingredients together in a medium bowl, add liquid ingredients and stir until mixed but don't stir too much. Pour into a 8x8 greased pan and bake at 375F for about 27-30 minutes. Check with a toothpick - if it comes out clean it's done! Cool on a cooling rack for about 15 minutes. Serve while warm, cut into 9 squares and serve. My husband cuts his piece(s) in half, puts a little butter on them and pours warm maple syrup over his. I like mine with a little agave on the top. If you have any left over I store it in the refrigerator in a sealed container or freeze it for a meal later in the week. Enjoy!
