I love the US deep south. After my trip to Savannah, I fell in love with y'all. I love grits, biscuits and gravy, pecan pie and sweet peach tea.
I made a simple chili (still needs work, not worth flogging) and some cornbread on the side.
It was a wonderful combination!
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- **1/3 cup olive oil
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). **Spray or lightly grease a foil loaf pan
- In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir in egg, milk and olive oil until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
- Bake in preheated oven for ** 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
**The recipe calls for vegetable oil and a 9-inch round cake pan. I had neither. I also baked it for longer. The original recipe said bake 20 to 25 minutes, but mine wasn't quite ready yet.
