Another Favorite Recipe - Cornbread
Smoked pork chops were on the menu last night. And since it is almost impossible to eat a pork chop without corn bread, I was basically obligated to whip up a batch:
Grease a brownie pan or muffin tin. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In large bowl mix together 1 1/4 cups cornmeal, 1 cup whole wheat flour (you could also use white), 1/2 cup sugar, 1 Tbsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt. In an smaller bowl, whisk together 1 egg, 1 cup milk and 1/4 oil (or liquid lard or bacon grease). Pour liquid into cornmeal mixture & combine. Add anywhere from 3/4 - one whole can of corn & mix all together (you can also toss the whole corn in the blender for a second if you don't like whole kernels in the bread). Pour into brownie pan (or muffin tins) and bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
