  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup corn kernels fresh or canned, drained
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1/4 cup sweet onion fine diced
  • 1 cup buttermilk plus more
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar


  • Preheat your oven to 375 F.
  • Set out two medium bowls.
  • In one bowl, gently stir together all of the wet ingredients.
  • In the other bowl stir together the dry ingredients.
  • Fold the wet ingredients into the dry, forming a batter. If it's too clumpy add more buttermilk, a little at a time, and stir.
