Sue's southern cornbread

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
5 tablespoons Butter (don't use low-fat or margarine)
1½ cup Flour
2½ cup Cornmeal
5 teaspoons Baking Powder
2 teaspoons Salt
1 tablespoon Sugar
2 larges Eggs
2½ cup Milk (don't use skim)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Melt the 5 Tbl. of butter in a cast iron skillet. Mix together the dry ingredients. Turn the skillet to coat with the butter. Pour the remainder into the dry ingredients. Coat the skillet with cornmeal & put into the oven to brown lightly.

Meanwhile, cut in butter until well blended & mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix together the eggs & milk. Add to the dry ingredients; mixing just until blended.

Remove skillet from oven & pour batter into the cast iron skillet. (The skillet should have a browned coating of cornmeal.) Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown & a toothpick comes out clean.
