This cornbread has an intense corn flavor and a coarse texture. I like to make cornbread muffins but you can also bake it in a cake pan.
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup shortening
  1. Mix the dry ingredients.
  2. Stir in the eggs, milk and shortening and mix well. The batter will be a bit lumpy.
  3. Pour the batter into a greased 9x9 pan or 12 greased muffin tins.
  4. Bake the bread at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes (10-15 minutes for muffins) or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Serve the cornbread warm with honey.
