  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1-½ cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 1 cup milk
  • 31 coals (10 bottom, 31 top)

Put butter in a large bowl and soften over the stove for a minute.  Add egg and sugar and mix till egg is beaten.  Alternately add milk and flour, then add all other ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Pour batter into a greased 12" Dutch Oven and put on the coals.  Let bake for 10 minutes, then remove 2 of the coals from the lid.  Bake with remaining coals for another 20 minutes.  When an inserted toothpick comes out clean, cornbread is ready.
