Heads or Tails *Recipe*


Heads or Tails has its very own home now! If you click on the graphic above, it will take you to the awesome new HoT blog where you can sign up and start participating in this fun and popular meme!

This week's theme is "recipe". So, I'm going to share my favorite corn bread recipe, which was my grandmother's recipe.

Vermont Corn Bread
1 stick margarine
1 cup sugar
pinch salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 cup corn meal
2 tsp baking powder

Put salt, sugar, butter in mixing bowl - stir with eggs (add them whole). Add milk, all flour, corn meal, and baking powder lightly folded.
Spread thin on a jelly roll pan (well greased) (I just use a cookie sheet with sides on it).
Bake at 425 degrees. When 3/4 done, cut into squares & rub some butter on top and put under broiler (we never had a broiler, so I just put it back in the oven). Total baking time will be 15-20 minutes.

If you decide to try it, I hope you enjoy it. Trust me, if I make it, that means it's a very easy recipe. ;-)

Sounds so very good! I love cornbread and am always amazed at how simple the ingredients usually are. I've never heard of spreading it thin like that, and I will have to give it a try!

Ain't grandma's baking just the best? It was my grandma's scones for me.

Did I tell you I started a new blog?
Come over and have a look!

Oh. My. Gosh. I LOVE LOVE cornbread!!!

You left something out tho, Misty.

You forgot to say pile on the (real) butter so that it runs down to your elbows. ;)

Oh, thanks! I just realized I've been craving cornbread!

I wonder why it is Vermont corn bread? It's really interesting. Everyone I know here uses real butter, though ("dairy fat is good for folks"). I'm going to try this one for sure!
