My recipe is definitely a staple where I am from. Some families add sugar, but we don't. In the past, I've had handwritten recipes to share, but this one has been memorized for a very long time. ;-)
Basic Corn Bread
1/2 cup salted butter
1 cup yellow corn meal
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup milk
First, I zap the butter in our microwave for about 30 seconds so it is nice and soft. Next comes the corn meal and flour. I make sure the butter is evenly distributed before I add the cold egg and milk. We like crispy corn bread, so in a well greased square baking dish, it is baked for about 25 minutes at a temp of 425. This recipe is great for muffins, too, baking them at 425 for about 20 minutes.
