My mother in law loves this cornbread and used to have me bring it over for Sunday dinner when we lived in California.

Killer Cornbread

1 1/2 cups flour

2/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

1 TBSP baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/4 cups milk    (*milk substitutes work great as well)

2 eggs

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1/2 tsp lemon juice

The directions are super simple:

Put your milk and lemon juice in together first. The lemon juice curdles the milk just a bit so it has more of a buttermilk flavor. Then add all your other ingredients. Grease a 9x9 pan and pour in your batter. Bake at 365 F for about 35 minutes (until toothpick inserted comes out clean). 

This is a wonderful companion to chili or soups. It's been in the family for years- I just tweaked it a bit.

Don't forget to pin it!! (Just hover over the image if you don't see a "pin it" button, and one will appear.)
