This is one of the easiest recipes that I know, and it is amazingly tasty. Corn bread is a favourite in North America and is eaten by itself or as an accompaniment to a meal.
Ingredients (serves 6-8)
175g plain flour
1tbsp baking powder
2tsp caster sugar
50g butter, melted
3 eggs, beaten
1tbsp olive oil
1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C. Sift the flour into a large bowl and stir in the cornmeal, salt, baking powder and sugar. 2. Make a well in the centre.
3. Mix together the melted butter, buttermilk, eggs and olive oil and pour into the well. Stir quickly to combine then pour into a greased 20cm square cake tin. Bake for 25-30 mins until golden and a skewer inserted into the bread comes out clean.
4. Leave in the tin for 5 mins then turn out onto a cooling rack.
5. Serve warm or cold cut into 6-8 pieces.
