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.

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.
