Andrew's Favourite Snack

I think the magic about cornbread is more the after-taste than anything.
When you first bite into it, it will be slightly corny and delicately sweet.
After swallowed, the lingering flavour will be more intensely corn and a little nutty.
Andrew begs for cornbread week after week. I once made it with pieces of shaved, sweet corn, but he complained that it made it too sweet. He likes it just like an authentic southerner... baked in a round, cut out like slices of cake, and with a good bite! (Due to the grit in the cornmeal.)

- 1 cup of flour
- 1 1/4 cup of stone ground yellow cornmeal
- 1 egg
- 1 quarter cup of veg. oil
- 1 cup of butter milk
- salt
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1tbs baking powder

Mix everything until JUST moistened and pour in a spring-form pan to bake for 25 min in a 400 degree oven.

*Possibly the SIMPLEST recipe in the world. I just don't get it. Why does he like cornbread so much?! He doesn't even originate from Louisiana!!
