Molasses Corn Cake

Another entry from the 1896 Fannie Farmer cookbook. Definitely a different take on cornbread - and just as definitely good. Give it a try!

Pretty darned easy to make. I've updated the recipe to include the notion of mixers and pre-heatable ovens.

Molasses Corn Cake

1 Cup Corn Meal
3/4 Cups Flour
3-1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
1/4 Cup Molasses
3/4 Cup Milk
1 egg
1 tbsp Melted Butter

Set oven to pre-heat to 375F.

Thoroughly butter a glass or iron 9" pan. Mix & sift dry ingredients together in mixer bowl.

Whisk together molasses and milk.

Slowly add milk mixture, egg (well beaten) and melted butter to dry ingredients with mixer at low speed. Mix thoroughly.

Pour mixture into buttered pan. Bake 20 minutes or until when tested with knife, knife comes out clean.
