My grandpa really likes cornbread and rarely gets it - so I made him some! He finally tried it tonight and liked it...yay! It wasn't quite sweet enough for my taste, so while the below recipe (from a package of Walmart corn meal) is good, I might look around for a sweeter one :)
1 cup yellow corn meal
1 cup all-purpose flower
4 tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1. Preheat the oven to 425 F.
2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Then add the wet ingredients.
3. Mix until the batter is mostly smooth, a little less than a minute did it for me.
4. Bake in a greased square pan for 23-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
I learned while talking to some facebook friends that cornbread is only an American food. None of the Europeans or Australians had ever tried it. Who knew???
