Molly's Cornbread

The is a really nice basic recipe for cornbread. Great with a soup dinner, or chilli. My family likes it with butter and honey or syrup or jam.

2 cups flour
2 cups cornmeal
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoons salt
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups milk, or sour milk, or buttermilk
1 stick of butter, melted.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Butter a 9 x 13 inch bake pan.
Mix the dry ingredients in a big bowl.
In another bowl or pitcher, combine the egg and milk.
Pour into the bowl with the the dry ingredients and mix.
Add in the melted butter.
Pour into the pan and bake for about 25 minutes.

This batter can of course be made into muffins if you like, or mini loaves, or whatever you like. Just adjust the cooking time.

If you want to make a smaller batch of cornbread:

1 cups flour
1 cups cornmeal
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons salt
1 eggs
1 cups milk + 2 tbls, or sour milk, or buttermilk
1/2 stick of butter, melted.

Put into an 8 inch square pan and bake for maybe 18-20 minutes.
Stick a toothpick into it to make sure it's done.
