Manuka Honey Thyme Cornbread
If you’re looking for something different and yet easy enough to make successfully on your first (or second) try, then this Manuka Honey Thyme Cornbread is your best bet! Requiring relatively few ingredients (including the ever favorite Manuka Honey and the hopefully available and in season thyme), this recipe only calls for a few basic cooking or baking tools to get the job done, from various sized bowls, utensils, and a right sized skillet, and the dish can be finished within 45 minutes of prep and cook time. Besides the logistics, this cornbread packs a flavor you’ve likely not tried before, offering a sweetness and a slight minty flavor while also lacking the spiciness of jalapeños for those who prefer milder cornbread.
If you think this sounds like the right kind of cornbread for your next meal, then copy this bad boy down and get started on your potential new favorite side dish!
