I made a very basic cornbread for the baby's birthday party. I had been wanting to make one for ages as I like the taste of corn and it's so easy, what with no kneading or rising or yeast involved. Perfect.
I used this recipe and followed it to the letter. I know, not like me, but let's remember that this is BAKING. Scary stuff. Okay, I did rebel a little, and threw fried onions into the mix. I'll add even more next time as it gave it an added depth. This one is supposed to be authentic southern cornbread, so I must get me some hog lard.
This is going to be a staple aroud here I think. It's so quick and easy. And I can add other ingredients as it takes my fancy. Like peppers and a pinch of cayenne for a Mexican version. Or herbs, or grated cheese. Mmmmm And I know I'll enjoy actual corn kernels too. It' good with all sorts of meals as well as with a little butter for breakfast.
