Sweet Moist Cornbread

So I have been kind of on a cornbread kick lately, I loved the Marie Calendar mix from costco, it's so moist and sweet, just the way I like it.  I ran out and wanted more cornbread so I searched for the perfect homemade replacement.  This recipe is just as good, it comes out delicious and meets all my perfect cornbread criteria!

1 Cup White Cornmeal (next time I will try 2 cups cornmeal to 2 cups flour)
3 Cups flour
1 1/4 Cup Sugar
2 Tbls. Baking Powder
1 tsp. salt
2/3 Cup Vegetable oil
1/3 Cup Butter, melted
2 Tbls. Honey
4 eggs
2 1/2 Cups Buttermilk (milk with 2 tsp. lemonjuice added)

Preheat oven to 350*.  Butter a 9 * 13 pan well.  Mix milk, eggs, honey, butter, and vegetabl oil in medium bowl.  In large bowl sift together cornmeal, flour, sugar, powder and salt.  Wisk together the moist and dry ingredients and pour into pan.  Bake for 45 minutes.  Serve warm with butter and honey, um um good!
