In the Kitchen:

Honey Corn Bread
1 c. cornmeal
1 c. sifted flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tbs. honey
2 tbs. butter
2 eggs -beaten
1 c. milk
Sift cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt together. Mix honey and
butter. Add beaten eggs and milk. Add sifted dry ingredients and mix
well, but not over mixed or it will produce tough bread. Bake in buttered pan in moderated oven (375 ° F) 20 to 30
minutes. Makes 1 (9 inch) square.
*I use an 8 inch cast iron skillet. I heat the skillet with butter in the oven while it preheats. This gives a good crisp crust on the outside of the cornbread.
