DIRECTIONS

  • Butter a 13x9x2-inch baking pan and place it on an oven rack in the middle of the oven.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. (But keep an eye on your butter to make sure it doesn't burn).
  • Mix together the flour,cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and the salt into a large mixing bowl, and make a well in the center of these dry ingredients with a spoon.
  • Beat the eggs in another large mixing bowl with an electric mixer.
  • Beat on high until the eggs are light yellow and slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.
  • Then beat in the milk, water, melted butter, oil, and vanilla.
  • Pour this egg mixture into the well in the dry ingredients, all at once.
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until it comes together in a batter (Do not over mix at this stage, or the cornbread may turn out tough).
  • Pour the batter into the hot baking pan (It should sizzle!) and bake until the cornbread is slightly golden brown, about 25 minutes.
  • Cut the cornbread into twelve 3inch squares.
  • Serve hot or warm.
  • (Or toasted the next day with honey butter!).
