Johnny Cake

Johnny Cake
12 servings

1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/3 cups cake flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease thoroughly an 8 inch square cake pan. Combine cornmeal and milk; set aside. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. Stir together the egg and milk; set aside. Cream shortening; blend in sugar. Stir flour mixture and egg mixture alternately into creamed mixture. Blend in cornmeal mixture. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm, with butter and enjoy!

This is a sweet, light corn bread. Perfect to cool the tongue after a bowl of spicy chili! :-)
