I love corn bread. Not the stuff out of a box, but the real thing. I went to make some last night and discovered I had no baking powder! So I looked in my Joy of Cooking for substitutions for baking powder, and the resulting corn bread was the best I've tasted. Try it, I think you'll agree!
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1 cup white flour
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
- 1⁄4 cup light sour cream
- 1 egg
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Sift together the corn meal, flour and sugar.
- Mix the baking soda with the yogurt sour cream and egg.
- Combine the yogurt mixture into the corn meal mixture. The batter will be thick, but don't worry.
- Pour mixture into greased (PAM) 8 inch square pan.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
- NOTE: For a more savory corn bread, omit the sugar and try adding any combination of following -- crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, green chilies.
I wouldn't deter anyone from making this, but oh my... if you think this is good cornbread than you've never had good cornbread. Sorry! haha It's a reasonable substitute I suppose, but I won't be making it again.
Yumtastic!!!!!!! We loved it. It's simply the best.....better than all the rest!
I'm one of those who can do without a lot of salt, so with cut it way back & had no problem with the resulting cornbread, which is ABSOLUTELY GREAT & FULL OF FLAVOR! Certainly is a make-again kind of recipe, & thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
