About the Recipe

With a crisp golden crust and a moist, fluffy center, this is an easy and irresistible recipe for bakers of all skillsets.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal

  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 3 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ⅓ cup neutral oil or melted butter

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 cup milk of choice


  1. Grease a 9-inch round cake pan or cast iron skillet well and set aside. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, add the flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Whisk to combine well.

  3. Make a well in the center of your dry ingredients and add your oil or butter, milk, and egg. Stir just until the mixture comes together and there are only a few lumps remaining.

  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is a deep golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve hot with your favorite soup or stew.
