This is the best corn bread. Just like my grandmother used to make.
American Southern corn bread is traditionally eaten with Chilli Con Carne or Ham and beans or just as a tasty side to any meal.

  • 1 1/2 cups corn meal

  • 4 tbsp sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 2 cups sour milk or buttermilk


  • 1.


  • 2.

    Sift dry ingredients together; mix in vegetable oil until mixture is coarse like meal. Combine eggs and milk; stir in flour and cornmeal mixture. Bake in greased muffin pans or square cake tin at 200° for 25 to 30 minutes. Makes about 1 1/2 dozen muffins
