  • 1½ cups yellow cornmeal
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Grease a 9”x13” baking pan or 2 8” cast iron skillets.
  2. With an electric mixer in a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy. Add the eggs, beating thoroughly. Stir in the cornmeal just until combined.
