Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place oven rack on the middle rack of your oven.
Butter a 9-inch square baking pan.
In a large bowl, mix together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder,
baking soda, and salt. Push the dry ingredients up the sides of the bowl to make
a well in the center. Crack the eggs into the well and stir lightly with a
wooden spoon; then add the olive, oil, buttermilk, and milk. Stir all the
ingredients until they are just combined. Do not overbeat!
Pour cornbread batter into the prepared baking
pan. Bake approximately 25 minutes until the top of the cornbread is golden
brown and lightly cracked and the edges have pulled away from the sides of the
baking pan. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack for cooling. Let cool 5
to 10 minutes before cutting and serving. Cut into squares and serve warm with
butter and honey.
