Notes: For bread that is sweeter and more tender, use the largest measure of sugar.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons or 1/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk
About 1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) cooled melted butter or margarine
How to Make It
In a bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, beat eggs to blend with buttermilk and 1/4 cup butter. Pour liquids into flour mixture and stir just until evenly moistened.
Scrape batter into a buttered 8-inch square pan and spread smooth.
Bake in a 400° oven until bread springs back when lightly pressed in the center and begins to pull from pan sides, about 25 minutes (20 minutes in a convection oven).
Cut bread into squares. Lift from pan with a slender spatula. Serve hot or cool.

Made this for friends and everyone ate it, but I thought it was too tangy from the buttermilk. My husband said it tasted tart or sour. He's a big cornbread fan and asked not to have this same recipe again. I used 1/4 C sugar and didn't find it too sweet.
