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.
Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake until golden. About 25 to 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack 5 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely on rack but you may also serve your Corn Bread still warm and cut into squares.
