Renee's Cornbread

Makes 16 pieces

Prep time: 5 minutes (I'd like to point out that this is so easy to assemble. It will take approximately 3 minutes longer than a Jiffy mix and it tastes worlds better.)

Cook time: 25 minutes

Cost: $.60

(Cornmeal: .15--bit of a wild guess; I haven't bought it for a while, flour: .11, milk: .13, egg: .10, sugar: .08, other stuff: .03)

3/4 C yellow cornmeal

1 1/4 C flour

1/2 C sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 C milk

1 egg

2 Tbsp oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease square pan (8 or 9 inch). Sift dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients and stir thoroughly. Pour batter into pan and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Test with a toothpick or fork or knife or some other method besides cutting it into 16 pieces and realizing that the top was still raw and throwing the partially cooled and thoroughly cut concoction back into the oven and then cooking it again (not that I have ever done this before).
