Best Corn Bread

This is a great tasting southern version of corn bread -- it's slightly sweet.

1 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Butter Melted (Real Butter!)
1 Large Egg
1 1/4 Cups Yellow Cornmeal
1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1) Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of 8x8x2 glass pan.
2) Beat milk, butter, and egg in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients all at once until flour mixture is moistened (batter will be a little lumpy and thick like brownie batter). Pour batter into prepared pan.
3) Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Recommendations: Be sure to use whole milk and real butter in this recipe.
Variations: 1 small can of Chopped Green Chilies or 1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese

I like sweet cornbread, but had a hankering for some savory cornbread once and added some sauteed red peppers and onions to the mix. I was very happy with the results. This recipe sounds good and I especially like the suggestion to try with the addition of green chilies or cream cheese. Makes me wonder if some pepper-jack cheese might also be a good additive. :)
