Corn Bread

Corn Bread I

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. While oven is preheating, put an iron skillet with 2 Tbsp. oil in the oven to heat up. In a large bowl stir together 1 cup flour, 1 cup yellow corn meal, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp. salt and 4 tsp. baking powder. Mix thoroughly and make a "well" in the center. In another bowl whisk 1 whole egg and 1 cup milk. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until barely combined.


Take the hot skillet out of the oven swirl carefully to grease sides of skillet, and pour remaining hot oil into the mixture and just barely combined. Mixture should be a bit lumpy. Overmixing will make nasty cornbread. Pour mixture into hot skillet and return to the oven for 20 minutes.

BE SURE TO USE POTHOLDERS WITH THE SKILLET! I have learned the hard way just how important this is.
