Total time:


Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup blue cornmeal
  • 4 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400.
  2. Using a hand blender, cream the butter and the sugar for about 3 minutes.
  3. Whisk the eggs and milk in a bowl, until blended.
  4. In another dry bowl, blend the dry ingredients together.  Start blending the liquids slowly into the dry mixture until everything is used.  Do not overmix - this part is best done by hand.
  5. Pour the batter into a greased 9x13 pan and bake for 20-25 minutes until you see the top browning very slightly.  Because of the color of the cornbread, it's a good idea to use a knife or toothpick inserted to test for done-ness.
