You Will Need

Preheat the oven to 400° F. Generously grease a cast iron skillet with butter.


In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and thyme. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl. Add the buttermilk and butter and whisk well.


Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined.


Add the cheese and stir again.


Transfer to the prepared skillet.


Bake for 19 to 23 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. (Cover with foil towards the end if it starts to get brown.)


Drizzle the top with additional melted butter if desired.
