Corn Bread

Corn Bread is a firm, slightly dense loaf that is an excellent base for open-face hors d’oeuvres even if it does crumble a little. It is also flavourful, especially when you combine it with the cayenne pepper. It gives a good flavour to this Corn Bread.

First, here is the list of the different ingredients you will need to make the Corn Bread that serves 6

  • 1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup sifted all purpose flour
  • one Tbsp sugar, one Tbsp baking powder and one tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 free range eggs, lightly beaten

Now, here are the few steps you will need to follow to make the Corn Bread

Preheat the oven to 400°F or 200°C. Butter a 9x9x3 inch pan. Combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Mix the milk, butter, eggs in another bowl.

Stir the milk mixture into the cornmeal mixture just until moistened.
