    Default Corn Bread

    Corn Bread


    Recipe Description
    This is from the 1989 Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. I'm posting it here partly because in another thread I said I would, and partly because I love this cornbread. I like to put in the full amount of sugar.
    Preparation Steps:Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    5-10 min. prep, 20-25 baking time
    Ingredients:
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup cornmeal
    2 to 4 Tbsp. sugar
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    2 eggs
    1 cup milk
    1/4 cup cooking oil or shortening, melted
    Serves:
    8-9 servings
    Directions:
    In a mixing bowl stir together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl beat together eggs, milk and oil or melted shortening. Add to flour mixture and stir just till batter is smooth.

    Pour into a greased 9x9x2 inch baking pan (I use a round glass pie pan). Bake in a 425 F oven for 20-25 minutes or till golden brown.

    Thanks! I grew a really nice crop of tomatoes last summer, but never got any pictures, so my avatar picture is something I found somewhere online.

    My kids love cornbread, but I've never tried to make it. Perhaps I'll buy some cornmeal and try it. This is going to sound really, REALLY stupid, but where in a grocery store would you find cornmeal?

    It's in the baking aisle (with the sugar, flour, etc) in my grocery store. HTH

    Here is my recipe from the cooking class

    1-1/4 cups cornmeal
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup packed brown sugar
    1/3 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 egg
    1 cup buttermilk
    3/4 cup vegetable oil


    In a bowl, mix cornmeal, flour, sugars, baking soda and salt. In second bowl, beat together the egg, buttermilk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour into a greased 9-in. round or square baking pan. Bake at 425° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool and serve with honey butter

    I tried this last week and every one loves it, I had it stale and crumbled into left over black eyed peas.

    I make my cornbread in my iron skillet and I use the fat from my bacon. I put the iron skillet right in the oven to bake it.
