How to make it

  • Sift together in bowl flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. **I use a fine strainer to sift with. It works great and is fast.** Stir in cornmeal.
  • In a small bowl beat eggs with fork; add milk and shortening. Add all at one time to cornmeal mixture. Stir with fork until flour is just moistened. Even if batter is lumpy, do not stir any more.
  • Pour into well-greased 9" square pan. **I know, 9 inch isn't a basic pan size, so 8 inch is fine too.**
  • Bake at 425 degrees F. for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick is inserted in the middle of the cornbread and comes out clean. Cut into squares and serve hot with butter. Yum!

    Nothing like hot cornbread out of the oven, slathered with homemade jam or honey (personally, I like just plain butter most of the time) - this sounds moist and yummy! When I start making scalloped potatoes and ham again this fall, this recipe will be served right along with it. Thanks!
