So I was sitting in bed last night watching “The Mentalist” when I mentioned to Derek that I didn’t have a post for today yet. Suddenly a topic popped into my head. I announced, “I should share the cornbread and chili recipe we had tonight. Those were good.” Derek responded, “Yes, the cornbread would be a good one to share.
“Oh I get it. You didn’t like the chili.”
“I’m not saying that. It was good too.”
“Right. I think that was very clever how you phrased it.”
“You are in charge of dinner tomorrow. I’m out.”
So, in light of our conversation I will only be sharing the cornbread recipe. Apparently it’s good enough to share.
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup honey
1 and 1/3 cups milk
2 and 1/3 cups flour
1 and 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup corn meal
1 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream sugar adn butter. Add in eggs, honey, and milk. Mix well.
2. Mix together flour, baking powder, corn meal, and salt. Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients. Do not over mix. Batter will be lumpy.
3. Pour batter in greased 11 x 14 inch baking pan. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown. (I cooked mine in a 9 x 13 pan for 28 minutes. I think it could have been taken out a few minutes earlier – just watch it carefully).
Anyone have a tried and true chili recipe?
