I decided to do a recipe today. This is not the best recipe I have ever eaten, or the most important. I am doing this one simply because Clover asked for the recipe yesterday, so it is already typed up. I am so shallow! Anyway, that being said, this is an awesome recipe!

This is a recipe I first made in Alaska, from the back of the Alber's cornmeal packet. I don't even know if they sell Albers out here. But this recipe was friendly to me when I had no recipes (or very few anyway!) so I have remained faithful to it. I have made it for about 7 years now and see no reason to change. It is scrumptious! And it goes with most everything! This is a very moist and sweet cornbread, so if you like your cornbread dryish and more corn than sweet, don't bother.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 c sugar
1/2 c cornmeal
1 Tblps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Mix together.
In seperate bowl, mix:
1 1/4 c milk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 c. vegetable oil
3 Tbsp butter melted.
Combine the flour mixture and the milk mixture, stirring just until blended. Make 18-20 muffins or an 8 inch square pan (greased!). Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes for muffins, 35 minutes for pan.
Try it. You will love it.

Will brothers like it? And can I follow a simple recipe? That's all the more I need to know as we head off to preps shortly.

It is highly excellent. I was planning on putting on my recipe blog this week, solely for the reason that you had already done the work of typing it up! :-) And Vera, it is a very basic recipe-- if you can measure ingredients, I think you would be all set!

I think the guys in my life like it. Justin loves it and I believe my brothers have been fond of it. Have fun at preps! Which one will you be at?
Ha stole your thunder, Clover.

Sounds good...we're having bbq and mac and cheese tomorrow night, so this will fit in perfectly!

Mmmmm, gotta love a good batch of cornbread! I have a tried-and-true recipe that includes a can of creamed corn, buttermilk, & sour-cream; delicious, but I might have to try yours sometime. The picture is very good advertising. =)
