Sour Cream Cornbread

There is something so special about old family recipes - even if it's not from my own family. This particular recipe came from my friend Stephanie who got it from her great-grandmother. Talk about history! And the fact that this cornbread is as easy as 1-2-3 (literally!) is just icing on the cake - or honey on the bread, to use a more fitting imagery. :)

What You Need
3/4 c. cornmeal
1 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tbsp. sugar
1 egg, well-beaten
2 tbsp. butter
1 c. thick sour cream
1/4 c. milk

What You Do
1. Turn on oven to 400 degrees, put butter in 9 x 9 dish, and place in oven to melt.
2. Combine dry ingredients, and sift. Add egg, sour cream, and milk, beating thoroughly.
3. Pour into buttered pan; and bake until golden, approximately 17-20 minutes.

Happy slathering...with butter, apple butter, jam, or-as pictured above-honey!

Better a bread crust shared in love
than a slab of prime rib served in hate.

My whole family (parents included) thought the sour cream in this made it so moist. I hope it turns out well for you! :)
