Hot water corn meal muffins

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Corn meal
4 teaspoons Baking powder
2 cups Boiling water
1 cup Sweet milk
1 teaspoon Melted butter or bacon grease
1 teaspoon Salt
2 Eggs

Sift corn meal & salt together & scald with the boiling water. Add cold milk to this mixture quickly & stir to keep the meal from lumping. Add eggs & beat well. Add baking powder when just ready to put in oven. Add butter last. Pour into well-greased muffin tins which have been heated in oven until almost smoking. Bake at 475 until well browned. Makes 16 large muffins.
