I made my first batch of corn bread yesterday. It got annihilated before I had the chance to take a picture. OK, ok, Honestly my husband wouldn't touch it, so I was the sole annihilator. First he said he forgot what corn was, then he tried a nibble and said it tasted like normal bread, and then when I said he should try a real bread he stormed off saying you can't tell me what to eat. OK> lol.

So I thought I would share the recipe with you

1 1/4 cup white flour (weisenmehl)
3/4 cup corn meal (maisenmehl)
1/4 cup Sugar (zucker)
2 Tsp Backing soda (note, German back pulver does not work the same as American, you cant switch them here you need American)
1/2 tsp Salt (salz)
1 cup Butter milk (buttermilch)
1/4 cup Sunflower oil (sonnenblummen oel)
1 egg, beaten (ei)

I used American measuring cups.

Combine all dry ingredients. Then add egg, milk and oil. Mix with a mixer until a creamy consistency is made.

Now do note, this is not going to be a dough like bread. It is going to be runny, like a cake mix. So use the same kind of pan you would for a cake. I used a small oval glass baking dish and it worked fine :)

Good luck

How do you make your corn bread? I really want to try some variations like those with creamed corn.
