Thumbs up Prairie Cornbread

Best cornbread I've ever had...nice and moist!

Prairie Cornbread

1 cup half-and-half
2 large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup corn oil
1/4 cup packed dark or light brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shelled sunflower seeds, preferably unsalted

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Oil or butter a 9-inch-square baking pan.
Whisk together the half-and-half, eggs, honey, oil, and brown sugar in a medium bowl. Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and sunflower seeds in a seperate bowl.
Stir the dry ingredients into the egg mixture until you have a rough batter; be careful not to overmix. Pour the batter into the baking pan.
Bake the cornbread for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and serve hot (yum) or at room temperature.
Serves 6.

I really like the idea of using shelled sunflower seeds, plus this is such a handy, classic recipe to have on file - thanks for sharing your favourite corn bread with us!

pdswife, do you have any evaporated milk? Or even some skim milk powder? When I don't have 1/2 and 1/2 I sometimes put a small bunch of skim milk powder in whole milk to get it a bit thicker. I've also used evaporated milk successfully.
