Step 1: Make sure to have all ingredients ready and within reach. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 425°F
Step 2: Mix the dry ingredients, including cornmeal, flour, baking powder, soda, salt, and sugar, in a large bowl. Ensure they mix properly.
Whisk the buttermilk and eggs together in a different bowl. Add the cream-style corn and melted butter, and then stir properly.
Step 3: Mix the wet and dry ingredients together and stir appropriately until it just blends. Then, carefully transfer the mix to the greased baking pan.
Step 4: Transfer pan and contents to preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes. When done, cornbread will turn golden brown and spring back when lightly touched.
Step 5: Take out bread from the oven, serve warm or cool for everyone to enjoy

If you lack buttermilk, you can substitute it with a homemade version. To prepare this, you measure 15 tablespoons of milk into a measuring cup and then add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar to it. Allow the mixture to stand for 10 minutes before using it for baking.

Green onions, cheddar cheese, and chipotle powder can be added to get variations in flavor.
You can make a bacon and cheese cornbread variation of this. This will require that you add ¼ cup of crumbled batter, 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese, and ¼ cup of sliced green onion.
