Bourbon spoonbread

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Milk
1 cup White Cornmeal
½ cup Butter; softened
½ teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
4 larges Eggs; separated
4½ teaspoon Bourbon

Preheat oven to 350øF. In saucepan, scald milk, heating until bubbles form from around edges of pan; then stir in cornmeal, beat thoroughly with spoon and cook over low heat until thick. Remove from heat, add butter, sugar, salt and baking powder and beat well until butter has melted. Set aside to cool.

In a small bowl, beat egg yolks and stir them into cooled corn bread mixture. In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, fold them into mixture, add bourbon and mix lightly. Pour mixture into a medium-sized casserole or baking dish and bake until a straw inserted into middle comes out clean, about 40 minutes.
