Serves: 6-8 Cooking Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil or melted butter



Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).


Stir together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.


In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, and oil.


Pour the egg mixture over the cornmeal mixture. Stir it all up.


Grease an 8-inch baking dish and pour the batter in.


Tilt the pan to spread the batter evenly. Tap it lightly on the countertop to remove air bubbles.


Bake for 20 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown. You’ll know it’s done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool slightly before cutting and serving.
