Corn Bread Cake

Well this is one that my mom made for me quite a few times. Now that im old enough i can make it for myself, her and anyone else who wants some. It came from The Congressional Club Cook Book, which made the recipe originally for muffins. But I tweaked it (which may be why it doesnt rise all the way up) a bit and now its a cake. Some people might already have all the ingredients on hand.Enjoy!

1 1/2 cups flour+enough to coat a cake tin
2/3 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups corn meal
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
4 tablespoons melted butter+enough to grease a cake tin

Sift flour,sugar,baking powder,salt and corn meal together in a large bowl. Mix together eggs, melted butter, and milk, in a seperate bowl. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients, until just well blended, but dont beat. Grease and flour a cake tin, and add the mixture into it. Cook at 450 until a toothpick comes out smooth.

I think it would go good with any kind of pot made food, chili, beans, goulash etc...
Thanks for the recipe.

This is one of those things that I call cake :) To me and my family, corn bread doesn't have sugar in it. BUT I do love corn bread cake :) TY for the recipe Mitch I will try it out for dessert one day.

Wish I'd had some of this last night for dinner, it would have been great with my lentil soup.


And my chickens would have loved the left over crumbs. Corn bread is their favorite treat.

I always add a little sugar to my cornbread, packaged or homemade. I gives it just little sweetness and keeps it from being bland. I usually only add about 2 tsp per 9 inch or muffins dish.
