Recipe Friday - Cornbread

We had this Monday night with our Chicken Chili and it turned out really well. Since one of my goals this year is to cut out a lot of the processed and pre-packaged foods we use, i had to come up with a cornbread recipe. I sinned a little and didn't use the cast iron skillet (I know, the horrors!) but it still turned out well!


1 cup cornmeal (don't forget to store this in the fridge so it doesn't go bad)
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 can corn
4 tbsp butter melted
1 egg

Whisk dry ingredients together, set aside. Drain corn and add to liquid measure, fill with milk to 1 1/4 cup. Using immersion blender (this has become a kitchen must have), blend milk and corn leaving some whole kernels. Add with butter and egg to dry ingredients, stirring to combine.

Pour into greased 8 X 8 Pyrex dish (or greased preheated cast iron skillet) and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Serve warm with lots of butter!

The cornbread looks great and I'm sure it taste good too, but I'm sure it would have tasted a better in the cast iron skillet! LOL
I think I'm going to try some of you dinner suggestions also.
