Bacon Corn Bread

Corn bread just naturally goes with fried chicken, ham steaks and - well, just about everything else. Don't beat the batter; just mix it, and only until dry ingredients are moistened. Corn-meal products are somewhat coarse in texture and crumbly - and best when served piping-hot with butter!

 
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 cup yellow or white corn meal
1/4 cup shortening, melted
1 egg
3 1/2 tsps. baking powder
3 tbsps. sugar
1 tsp. salt

 
Sift flour; measure; add baking powder, salt and sugar. Sift again; add corn meal. Mix well. Combine egg, milk, and shortening. Pour into flour mixture and mix just enough to moisten dry ingredients. Do not beat. Turn into greased pan. Bake.

 
Variation:  ** YOU MUST TRY**   Add 1/2 cup coarsely chopped crisp cooked bacon to batter. Bake.
