the best cornbread in the world!
We all jump for joy when my manly man makes his cornbread. We took it to a church function once and a senior citizen said it tasted just like her grandmothers! The recipe is out of the Original Boston Cooking-School Cookbook 1896 by Fannie Farmer. It says things like,"make sure the oven is hot".
The only reason I hesitate giving out this recipe is that not everyone has home grown indian corn that they grind. I think it gives it the old fashion touch.
My manly man grows indian corn every year, dries it , and grinds it when needed.
Here's the simple recipe straight from Fannie Farmer-
Golden Corn Cake
3/4 Cups corn meal
1 1/4 Cups flour
1/2 C. sugar
4 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 Cup milk
1 T. melted butter
Mix and sift dry ingredients; add milk, egg well beaten, and butter; bake in shallow buttered pan in hot oven for twenty minutes. (400 degrees)
Let me know how you like it! Enjoy!
