But it does look like my cornbread!
My oldest cherub's birthday was last week.
At our house, when it's your birthday, you get to have your favorite meal.
Whatever you want is what momma fixes.
Unless it's really, really weird!
This year, my cherub wanted Cornbread and Chicken.
Because of Alan Jackson's song, "Where I Come From."
Do you know it?
Here's a link to listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMfI0qd3fyA
Along with the cornbread and chicken, he wanted creamed corn, sweet potato casserole, rolls (which, by the way, I did NOT allow!), and cinnamon rolls for dessert.
So, as a good momma . . . I gave that boy what he wanted!
Here's one of the recipes from that meal.
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cups sugar
1 TBSP baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup oil
3 TBSP butter, melted
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 cups milk
In a large bowl mix the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together. Stirring to incorporate.
In a small bowl, mix the oil, melted butter, beaten eggs, and milk together.
Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and stir until well combined.
Bake in an 8 X 8 or 9 X 9 pan, or in a heated casted iron skillet, at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until done.
This can be doubled and baked in a 9 X 13 pan.
