  1. 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 3/4 cup cornmeal
  3. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  4. 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  5. 1 teaspoon salt
  6. 1 1/4 cup milk (I use whole milk.)

  8. 1/4 cup of unsalted butter, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and salt. Set aside. Combine milk and egg in a separate bowl. (Or simply add the egg to the measured milk and whisk together.) Melt butter.
  3. Add the milk and egg mixture and the melted butter to the flour mixture. Stir with a spoon until all combined. Pour into a greased 9-inch cast iron skillet (pie pan or baking dish) and bake for 25 minutes or until lightly golden brown on top. Serve immediately. Store in a closed container for the next day for any leftover pieces.

    I absolutely love corn bread! This recipe sounds perfect; slightly sweet, crunchy top and moist! Yum! Another way I enjoy my cornbread, is with cheddar cheese mixed in with chopped jalapeño’s. So, good!

    I love cornbread, especially with chili or soup. I usually use the box mix, I’ll admit. Then last year I tried making it from scratch. It was a disaster. Dense and bland and I don’t know why aside from the fact that it just wasn’t a good recipe. I’ve not tried another recipe since. Yours looks so moist and tender. Maybe I’ll give it another shot. 🙂
