Not-Too-Sweet Corn Bread

For the past year or so, I have been trying to find a good recipe for corn bread.

At first we tried a corn bread recipe that had corn in it.  It was really good.  The next day, the corn kernels turned to crunchy, icky yellow blogs that were not preferred.  Being as we are just a family of four, we appreciate our leftovers.  I stopped trying to find a recipe with corn in it.

I had tried a couple other recipes, but they were too sweet.  Finally, I tried the recipe on the Indian Head Yellow Corn Meal bag.  It was a hit with both of us!  It was so moist, too, that when it was warm I did not need butter on it!  Below is the recipe, word for word, though I'm sure you can tweak it to make it your own. They did have a suggestion for a sweeter corn bread, but I'll just share the standard recipe.

Golden Yellow Corn Bread

1 cup Indian Head Yellow Corn Meal
1 cup sifted flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder

Please read the full Corn Bread Recipe at my new blog, This Simple Home.

That's the one we use as well - it is fabulous! The only change I make is to use melted butter instead of oil...not sure on the benefits of that choice, if any, but we like the buttery flavor added into it.
And, I had no idea you can put corn meal in the freezer!

I still have yet to find a cornbread recipe that everyone around here likes. I"ll have to try yours!

I'm always looking for a good cornbread recipe. Thanks for the degree tip. I usually just omit it in my recipes, but it's fun to know!

I've always hated sweet cornbread, so I just didn't bother with it. Then I found one in the Jan Karon Mitford Cookbook, and my family just fell in love with it!
I'll have to try this one, too, just to make sure. :)
Great tip on the freezer!! I rarely use cornmeal, either.

That is very similar to the one on our Quaker Corn Meal, except it calls for a little more flour and a little less corn meal. Wonder if you could tell the difference?

So, saw your comment on Reading to Know, and thought I'd suggest: Sense and Sensibility or Pride and Prejudice for your first Jane Austen reads.

I don't know why I didn't just email you.
