Country Cornbread

To all southerners, cornbread is a dietary staple.  While the box of Jiffy Cornbread does work, it tends to be very sweet. For the same amount of work, you can create your own country style cornbread.

INGREDIENTS:
2 cups Self-rising Corn Meal
1 egg
1  1/3 cup milk*

Pre-heat oven to 450.  In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients.  Pour into a well greased 9″ round cake pan.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.  Let rest for 5 minutes before removing it from the pan

*Almond milk can be substituted to create a dairy-free dish.

TIPS: My grandmother always made hers in a cast iron skillet.  She would preheat her pan with about a 1/4 cup of canola oil in it.  When she added the batter, the edges would be fried and crispy.
