Corn Bread

I love this cornbread recipe.  I found it in my Fannie Farmer Cookbook.  It’s pretty simple and can be made in just 30 minutes while my chili is simmering.  I have a couple corn bread recipes I like.  Actually, I don’t usually like cornbread much at all.  It’s often crumbly and sticks to your mouth like glue.  This one is a little more cake like and sweeter which always makes it a crowd pleaser.



  • 3/4 C yellow corn meal
  • 1 C all purpose flour
  • 1/3 C sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 C milk
  • 1 egg, well beaten
  • 2 Tbsp melted shortening


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Grease an 8 inch square cake pan.
  3. Mix the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  4. Add milk, egg, shortening and blend well.
  5. Pour into cake pan.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown on top.
