    3KillerBs's Note:

    A simple, basic, no-frills cornbread to accompany chili, greens, ham and cabbage, or to serve with your favorite jelly/jam/spread any time the plate seems a bit bare and the meal seems to want stretching. If you are being very frugal, reconstituted dry milk works just fine. Note: if you want to increase it for a 13x9 pan I find it works better to use 1 1/2 times the ingredients instead of double.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350 and grease an 8x8 pan.
    2. 2
      Mix the cornmeal, flour, and 2tbs canola oil together until crumbly.
    3. 3
      Beat eggs into the milk then mix into the cornmeal all at once. Stir just enough to blend thoroughly -- it won't rise well if overmixed.
    4. 4
      Bake 35-40 minutes or until the center tests done.
    5. 5
      Let cool a few minutes before cutting then serve warm with butter or other favorite topping.
    6. 6
      Note: if you want to increase it for a 13x9 pan I find it works better to use 1 1/2 times the ingredients instead of double. A fully doubled recipe is reluctant to cook fully in the center before the edges get dried out.
