Bettyskitchen's picture
  Milk 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Cornmeal 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Eggs 3
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Baking powder 1 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon

Stir meal into rapidly boiling milk. Cook until very thick, stirring constantly. Remove from fire and allow to cool. The mixture will be cold and very stiff. Add well beaten eggs, salt, baking powder and melted butter. Beat with electric beater for 15 minutes. Pour into well greased casserole. Bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees. Serve from casserole by spoonfuls. This is the spoon bread for which Boone Tavern is so famous. Be sure to use white cornmeal for the true southern bread.
