DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 and grease an 8x8 pan.
  • Mix the cornmeal, flour, and 2tbs canola oil together until crumbly.
  • 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.
  • Bake 35-40 minutes or until the center tests done.
  • Let cool a few minutes before cutting then serve warm with butter or other favorite topping.
  • 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.
