“A great corn bread recipe, sweet and moist. For a less "granule" texture, let the corn meal soak in the milk for about 15 minutes before mixing everything together.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and corn meal together; set aside.
  3. In a second bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, eggs and milk.
  4. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and beat together.
  5. You may need to add a bit more milk - it should be the consistency of cake batter.
  6. Pour into a greased and floured 9 inch square pan.
  7. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
  8. If you would like to add chopped jalapenos or cheese, I would suggest decreasing the amount of sugar, as this does make a pretty sweet bread, and I don't think it would be suitable flavour with heat!
