Friend Fridays: Lena Nelson Dooley's Cornbread

Lena's Cornbread

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

2/3 Cup white cornmeal
1 1/3 Cup unbleached flour
1/3 Cup sugar (I use Florida Crystals Organic Sugar)
1 teaspoon sea salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
Whisk together:
2 eggs
1 Cup milk
1/3 Cup oil

Whisk in dry ingredients until well mixed. Spray muffin tins with Pam. Fill muffin tins about 1/3 full, using all the batter. Bake about 15 minutes, until golden brown. Makes 1 dozen cornbread muffins.
I had a recipe from my mother, but I changed quantities until I had a sweeter cornbread that didn't crumble so much. We love it on a cold winter day when I make beef stew.

Conversation starter: If you could write a book about anything, what would you write about?

I'm excited to try this, Lena. I grew up with the best cornbread being made at my school. I've never found a cakey, sweet cornbread like it. Then they'd brush the top with honey butter. Mmm, mmm. There were trades going on for every item on the tray to load up on the cornbread, lol.
