Rob the Bees
Raw honey's magic has been hailed
since early human times;
its properties are quite diverse,
but cooking's where it shines.
It can be used for everything
from coffee cake to mead;
but when our honey jars run dry,
we must go rob the bees.
They do not mind so much, I think,
to share a bit with me;
today I've got spare time to bake
this wondrous recipe.
It calls for one cup of whole milk,
a cup of cornmeal too,
a quarter cup of honey, raw;
now stir it with a spoon.
Then add two eggs, a pinch of salt,
and half a stick of melted ghee
(or butter, if you're so inclined;
I will not disagree!)
You also need some baking powder
(a tablespoon, my friend),
a half a cup of sugar, too,
and lastly flour (bread).
Now stir while you incorporate
the flour (it's a cup),
then grease your pan and pour the mix
into the pan- don't slop!
Preheat to four hundred degrees,
and bake it fifteen ticks
(or minutes if you're keeping track)
then prick it with a stick...
And when your toothpick comes out clean,
you're ready to enjoy
the tasty treat the bees helped bake:
a honey cornbread, oi!
