Put the 2 tablespoons of butter in a round, 9-inch baking pan and bake for about 5 minutes or until the butter has melted completely. Carefully remove the pan from the oven and pour the cornbread batter over the melted butter. It’s important not to mix the batter with the melted butter. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean. Remove from oven.
