I got up this morning and thought, "why don't I try something new today?"
After a raid of my pantry I discovered I had a bag of yellow corn meal. Obviously at some time in the recent past I thought I'd try making cornbread from scratch instead of from a box.
I'm sure glad I did! You should try it too, it's easy and delicious.
Here's how I made it:
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cups yellow corn meal
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
Beat the eggs then add all the other ingredients, mixing until smooth.
Pour the batter into a greased square baking pan.
Bake in a 450° oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until done.
I covered a slice with butter and honey and had it with my morning cup of coffee. Yum!
