  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg

  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Butter


  • Large Mixing Bowl

STEP 1: Preheat oven to 400 °F. Meanwhile, into a large mixing bowl add milk and cornmeal. Whisk well to combine and let stand for 5 minutes.






STEP 2: Into a separate mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir well to combine. 



STEP 3: Add egg and canola oil into cornmeal mix and whisk to combine. Then, add dry mixture in and continue to stir just until combined (be sure not to over mix!). 




STEP 3: Pour mixture into a lightly greased oven safe pan and drizzle Poirier's Louisiana Style on top. Gently swirl with a fork. Place into oven and bake for 20 minutes.
