Makes 1 loaf bread or 1 dozen muffins
You can make your cornbread without sugar if you prefer. Cajuns like it sweet.
Double the recipe if you don't want them to be flat.
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup cornmeal
2/3 cup sugar (optional)
½ cup corn flour (you can use cornmeal if you don't have corn flour)
5 tablespoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups milk
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 small egg, beaten
In large bowl combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, corn flour; baking powder, and salt; mix well, breaking up any lumps. In a separate bowl combine the milk, butter and egg and add to the dry ingredients; blend just until mixed and large lumps are dissolved. Do not overbeat.
