Why I Love This Recipe

I know everyone is biased towards what they grow up with but I really think this is the best cornbread ever. I hate sweetness or chunks of gooey corn in mine and this has neither. Just salty, crunchy cornbread goodness.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 C. flour
1 C. fine ground yellow corn meal
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp.sugar
1 C. plus a splash of milk
1 egg
1/4 C. oil or bacon drippings plus a little more for the muffin tin


Dribble a bit of oil into each cup of a 12 seater muffin pan, metal is better than silicone for this recipe. Place it in a 425 degree oven.

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.

When the oil in the pan is hot enough to sizzle over a drop of batter, fill the cups very quickly so that it is essentially frying before baking.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Serve with hot soup and butter.
