Yield: 4 Servings
|1¼ cup||All purpose flour|
|¾ cup||Corn meal|
|2 teaspoons||Baking powder|
|¼ cup||Vegetable oil|
|1 each||Egg, beaten|
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 8 or 9 inch baking pan. Combine dry ingredients. Stir in milk, oil and egg, mixing just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 20 - 25 minutes or until lightly brown and wooden tooth pick inserted near center comes out clean. Serve warm. Serves 9. Microwave directions: Mix ingredients same as above and pour batter into UNGREASED pan.
Microwave on HIGH 5 - 6 minutes, rotating ¼ turn after 2 minutes.
Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Hope this is simple enough..... As the recipe says...only mix ingredients until moistened. If you beat it too much it would come out solid rather than light and airy. I cover the baking pan with Saran Wrap leaving part of one corner pulled back for steam to get out when I put it in the microwave...seems to help it bake more evenly. The center will seem a little soggy when you take it out but remember it continues to cook during that 5 minutes before you serve it. Time also makes a difference depending on the wattage of your micro. I think I leave mine in for about 7 minutes.
