  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil


  1. Preheat oven to 450°. In a small bowl, whisk cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk egg, buttermilk, milk and oil until blended. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened.
  2. Transfer to a greased 8-in. square baking pan. Bake 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm.
To substitute for each cup of buttermilk, use 1 Tbsp. white vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to measure 1 cup. Stir, then let stand 5 min. Or, use 1 cup plain yogurt or 1-3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar plus 1 cup milk.
