Some Facebook friends asked me to share my cornbread recipe:
This simple, delicious recipe is in our family for decades, given by a friend when I was a little kid. I have it handwritten in my old recipe book, and the page is all stained by use. It's a must at home - I make it almost on a weekly basis, since it's Lucas' favorite cake along with my carrot cake with chocolate frosting.
It's very easy to make and it bakes pretty fast. So here it is:
- 200g butter in room temperature
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups cornmeal
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 3 eggs
- In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar, then add the other ingredients, one by one, in the above-mentioned sequence, mixing them very well.
- Pour the mix into a greased and floury baking pan. Bake at 554° F for more or less 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cut into squares. Devour it.
I like to spread a thin layer of butter on my slice to watch it melting before I savor it with a mug of hot chocolate. It's a dream. :o)
