I’m not much of a cook, but I do like to bake. I’d like to share one of my family’s favorites that easy to throw together and tastes so much better than the box cornbread mix. (No shade to the boxed mix, I’ve used that a time or two.)
For a less-sweet taste, of course, reduce the sugar….but who would want to do that?
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
1/3 cup olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9-in round cake pan with butter OR use a 9 inch iron skillet.
Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder.
Stir in egg, milk and olive oil until well combined. Pour batter into well-oiled pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Enjoy with butter.
