CORN BREAD
Makes 8-9 servings

Dry Grains you need to mill:
1/2 C of Dried Corn should make approx amount of flour below.
1/2 C of Soft White Wheat Grain should make approx amount of flour below.

Mix together all dry ingredients first:
3/4 C corn meal
3/4 C wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
up to 1/4 C sugar/succanat (optional - we like it sweet)

Preheat oven to 425 with 3 TBS butter in 10-12 inch iron skillet or 8x8 Pyrex dish inside oven. You will need to watch this and now move fast....

Make a ‘well’ in the middle of the dry mix and add :
3/4 C butter milk (or *soured milk)
2 TBS Honey (omit if you used sugar/succanat in dry)
1 egg

~BEFORE YOU STIR THIS TOGETHER~ take pan out of oven and pour in melted butter. Be sure to leave bottom of pan well coated for non-stick purposes.

Mix ingredients and quickly pour into hot buttered pan. Replace in oven on middle rack for about 20-25 minutes.

Slice within the pan and serve with butter, honey or molasses.

* this does need to be made ahead of mixing dry ingredients... soured milk = add 1 TBS of vinegar or lemon juice for every 3/4C milk

Variations:
Add one can of drained corn (or 1C frozen)
Add diced jalapenos, tomatoes, corn and/or onions for a Mexican Cornbread.
