2 sticks unsalted butter, melted, plus more for brushing
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup honey
4 large eggs, room temperature
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups cornmeal
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray or lightly butter an 13 x 9″ baking pan and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the melted butter, sugar and honey. Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, until well-combined. Whisk in the buttermilk.
In another mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, salt, and baking soda. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, a bit at a time, until fully incorporated.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and let sit for 5 minutes before baking.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, rotating halfway through, or until the top is golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the pan and brush with melted butter. Serve warm.
