Sunset MARCH 1999

  • Yield: Makes 9 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

Preparation

1. 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.

2. Scrape batter into a buttered 8-inch square pan and spread smooth.

3. 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).

4. Cut bread into squares. Lift from pan with a slender spatula. Serve hot or cool.
