From The Fannie Farmer Cookbook, 13th edition
- 3/4 c. yellow cornmeal
- 1 c. flour (can use half white whole wheat)
- 1/3 c. sugar
- 3 t. baking powder
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1 c. milk
- 1 egg, well beaten
- 2 T. melted bacon grease or butter or corn oil (I use corn oil since it's easy)
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease muffin cups thoroughly (I use butter).
- Mix cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together. Add milk, egg, and fat/oil, and blend well. Spoon into the muffin cups (about 3/4 full). Bake for about 20 minutes.
