Poppy & Laverne’s Cornbread (recipe for Thanksgiving Dressing)



2 eggs, slightly beaten

1 cup milk, or buttermilk

1/4 cup oil (or melted shortening)

1 1/2 cups yellow corn meal

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 1/4 tsp baking powder

1 tsp sugar

3/4 tsp salt


Heat oven to 450 degrees.  Oil your iron skillet and let heat in oven until very, very hot.  Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Pour batter into hot skillet.  Bake for 20 – 25 minutes. These are the instructions my mother-in-law wrote for me when she gave me her recipe.
