- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 2 large eggs
- 2-3 tablespoons honey (adjust to taste)
- Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C).
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well to combine the dry ingredients.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, and honey. Adjust the amount of honey to your desired level of sweetness.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until you have a smooth batter. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
- Grease your EaZy MealZ Deep Bake Pan that fits comfortably in your air fryer basket. You can use a round or square dish, depending on the shape of your air fryer basket.
- Pour the cornbread batter into the EaZy MealZ Deep Bake Pan, spreading it out evenly.
- Place the dish in the preheated air fryer basket.
- Air fry the cornbread at 350°F (175°C) for about 15-20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Keep an eye on the cornbread, as cooking times may vary depending on your specific air fryer model.
- Once the cornbread is done, carefully remove it from the air fryer and let it cool for a few minutes.
- Slice and serve your air-fried honey-infused cornbread while it's still warm. Enjoy the crispy exterior, soft interior, and a touch of sweetness from the honey.
