Best Cornbread Ever

Last night, I pulled chili from the freezer for supper and decided to make cornbread to go with it. I found a recipe I'd printed off the internet a few weeks ago and decided to try it.

Oh. My. Goodness.

Best cornbread I've ever had. Paul said it's the second best cornbread he's ever had. The best was years ago, made by Grandma Kate (not his grandma, the neighbor's) and from freshly ground field corn plucked from the stalk at just the right time. I can't compete with that and I'm not even going to try.

But anyway, good cornbread. Here's the recipe if you'd like to try it yourself.

Sweet Cornbread

1 c. flour
1 c. cornmeal
2/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
1 c. milk
1/3 c. vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9" round cake pan. (I used a deep dish pie pan.)

Combine all dry ingredients. Stir in egg, milk, and oil until well combined. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

P.S. If you happen see the shirt that the baby is wearing in the video below, let me know. It has entered the Great Laundry Vortex, and I'm bummed. I like that shirt.
