Butter 1 Tablespoon , softened
Butter 1 Tablespoon , cut into 1/4
Cornmeal 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Unsifted flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Sugar 2 Tablespoon
Baking soda 1 Teaspoon
Cream of tartar 1 Teaspoon
Salt 1 Teaspoon
Egg 1 , lightly beaten
Sour cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Milk 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)



1. Preheat the oven to 425°.

2. Take an 8-by-8-by-2-inch baking dish, spread 1 tablespoon of softened butter evenly over the bottom and sides with a pastry brush and set aside.


3. Into a deep mixing bowl combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt, and sift them together.

4. With a large wooden spoon, beat in the egg and, when it is completely incorporated, add the sour cream, milk and the tablespoon of butter bits.

5. Into the buttered baking dish, scrape the entire contents of the bowl with a rubber spatula.

6. Spread the cornbread mixture to the edges of the dish and smooth the top with the spatula.

7. Bake in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes until the top is golden brown and a cake tester or toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


8. Serve the sour-cream cornbread at once, directly from the baking dish.
