Sweet Cornbread

A simple cornbread recipe, nice for celebrating Lammas, the first harvest.

1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
2/3 cup sugar
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Preheat your oven to 400F. Grease a 9x9 baking pan, and set aside.

Mix the flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Add the egg, milk, and oil, and mix just until everything comes together. Don't over mix. Pour into the baking pan, and bake for about 20 minutes, until the cornbread is a nice golden brown. Instead of baking in a pan, you can also bake in a muffin tin.

This is a simple base recipe which can be played around with. You can try pouring half the batter into the pan, adding a layer of thinly sliced apples, then carefully pouring in the rest of the batter. Or for something more spicy, dice some jalapenos into the mix, or layer them on top of the bread before baking - a layer of cheese also goes nicely with that.
