Here is a recipe for Southern Corn Bread that is being shared by Hayden Powers.
SOUTHERN CORN BREAD
2 cups white Corn Meal-Martha White is the best.
1 large egg
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups of milk.
1 tbsp sugar. You can add a little more if you prefer it sweeter.
1/4-cup vegetable oil.
Preheat oven to 425.
Add oil to cast iron skillet and put in oven while preheating.
Mix Corn Meal, egg, milk and sugar until smooth. Set aside until oven is preheated.
Add hot oil from skillet to corn bread mixture and stir in.
Pour in to hot skillet and bake at 425 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top.
Remove from oven and let cool a minute or two.
Gently try to pry baked corn bread from skillet with out tearing bottom. If your cast iron skillet is well seasoned this should not be a problem.
Cut into pieces, slice add butter and drink some sweet ice tea.
This is a pretty common southern recipe. You can find the same recipe on the bag of Martha White corn meal
