1-1/2 cups yellow corn meal
1-1/2 cups general all purpose flour
4 tablespoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1-1/2 cups milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons melted butter
Grease cast iron skillet with a little vegetable oil.
Set the oven to 425 degrees and heat your skillet. If you don’t have the cast iron skillet use a iron baking pan.
Blend corn meal, flour, baking powered and sugar in a mixing bowl. In another bowl, wisk together your milk, eggs and melted butter. Make the corn bread batter by mixing your dry and wet ingredients together thoroughly.
Next using oven mittens, carefully remove the cast iron skillet from the oven. Using a kitchen basting brush or whatever you have available coat the inside of your skillet with vegetable oil.
Pour batter into the skillet and return to oven. Bake for about half an hour or until a wooden tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Bake till golden brown.
