Golden Corn Bread

Updated – originally posted November 2, 2008

For as long as I can remember, when my mom made chili, this corn bread never failed to be right alongside. My mom would cut the pan into 9 pieces, and the lone piece that was not a corner or a side was the most coveted. We would eat it drizzled with warmed honey, but these days Matt and I have taken to crumbling it right into the chili.

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cornmeal.

In a small bowl beat eggs with fork; add milk and butter. Add all at once to cornmeal mixture. Stir until flour is just moistened. Even if batter is lumpy, do not stir any more.
