Who does't love warm homemade corn bread. It goes great with a bowl of chili, but also with many other things.tttt Very easy and quick to make. I also think it tastes better cooked in a cast-iron pan, and I don't know why. This does not mean you can't bake it in a glass pan, it will still be wonderful.
*1 cup cornmeal
*1 cup all-purpose flour
*1 tablespoon baking powder
*1/4 teaspoon salt
*1/4 teaspoon baking soda
*1 1/4 cups buttermilk
*1 large egg
*2 tablespoons sugar
*1/4 cup vegetable oil
*2 tablespoons butter
~Place cast-iron skillet in the oven and preheat to 375 degrees.
~Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder & salt in a medium bowl.
~In a large mixing bowl, mix the buttermilk & baking soda.
~In a small bowl, beat the eggs & sugar until well mixed.
~Add the oil into the egg mixture and beat until well combined.
~When the oven has preheated, toss butter into the skillet and let it melt.
~Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture.
~Mix, but just enough to make the dough come together. Do not over cook.
~Pull the skillet out of the oven.
~Swirl the butter around to cover the bottom and sides of the skillet.
~Pour the batter into the pan.
~Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and bread starts to pull away from the sides of the pan.
~Remove from oven and invert onto a cutting board.
~Cut into wedges and serve while still warm.
