Ingredients
  Sifted flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Corn meal 1 Cup (16 tbs), sifted
  Baking powder 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Egg 1
  Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Cooking oil/Melted shortening / bacon drippings 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

Preheat oven to 400° F.
Sift flour, corn meal, baking powder, salt, and, if you like, sugar into a bowl; beat egg with milk and oil just to blend.
Make a well in dry ingredients, pour in egg mixture, and stir until well blended.
Pour into a well-greased 8"x8"x2" baking pan and bake 20-25 minutes until bread pulls slightly from edges of pan, is lightly browned and springy to the touch.
Cut in large squares and serve oven hot with lots of butter.
