Easy Corn Bread

Ingredients:

1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup corn meal

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup milk

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 egg, beaten

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 400 F.

Grease a square 8-inch pan or a standard muffin tin.

Combine the dry ingredients.

Stir in the milk, oil and egg, mixing just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and a cake tester or wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean.

If freezing, allow to cool first.

Honey Butter

Ingredients:

1 pound butter (regular, salted)

1/4 cups honey

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Cut the butter into chunks.

Place butter into a mixing bowl, and beat it at low-speed, using the whisk attachment. This will first loosen the butter.

Next, increase the speed on the mixer to medium, then and add the honey, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Beat for five to seven minutes, or until it is well mixed.

Remove the honey butter from the bowl and spoon it onto parchment paper or plastic wrap, then roll it into a log.

Refrigerate the honey butter for 2 hours before using. Alternatively, you can scoop the butter into a pretty crock before placing it in the refrigerator.
