Amish Cornbread

This is one of many "standard" cornbread recipes.
Note that the amount of
cornmeal is equal to the amount of flour. Since
this recipe calls for 1/4
cup sugar, it will be slightly sweet. For a less
sweet cornbread, reduce
the sugar to two tablespoons.

If you prefer butter to shortening, use 1/4 cup
butter. If you use salted
butter, reduce the salt in the recipe to 1/2

Amish Cornbread

1 c. sifted flour
1/4 c. sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 c. yellow cornmeal
1 egg, well beaten
1 c. milk
5 tbsp. shortening melted and cooled

Sift first 4 ingredients. Mix in cornmeal. Blend
egg, milk, shortening until
mixed. Add to dry ingredients and beat until
smooth. Use greased (bottom
only) 8x8x2 pan. Bake 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
