On an icy, wind-swept New Year‘s eve, what could warm your heart and stomach more than some hot crusty corn bread? The following recipe is a perfect accompaniment to the black-eyed peas we started yesterday.
Crusty Corn Bread
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease an 8 or 9-inch pan.
Children can measure flour, corn meal, sugar, baking powder and salt into a medium-sized bowl.
Make a well in the center and add milk, oil and egg. Mix just until dry ingredients are moistened, about 50 strokes.
Pour into prepared pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until light brown. Cut into 9 slices or square. Best served warm with a dab of butter.
Yield: 9 servings
Hope you enjoy the hot bread. You can refer to this and other seasonal recipes in Amy Hout’s childrens cookbook, Cooking Around the Country with Kids: Holiday and Seasonal Food and Fun.
I wish you a happy and prosperous New Year, filled with many blessings. See you in 2011!
Best to you,
