Perfect Cornbread

It's almost time.....I feel like we've been waiting forever.  One more day and we get to see BRUCE (Springsteen) live!!!!!!  I am sooooo excited!!!!  Bruce is one of the only singers that my husband and I both like, so when I heard he was going on tour I knew I had to get tickets.  It will be nice to get away, even if it's just for one night, with my husband to see one of the most amazing performers ever.  Have I mentioned how excited I am????!?!?!? BRUCE :)

Finding a good cornbread recipe is not easy.  Most are too dry, some are too sweet and some don't have the right cornmeal to flour ratio.  I have tried tons of cornbread recipes, none of them living up to my standard for the perfect cornbread.  Then finally I came across this recipe that to me made the perfect cornbread.  The only negative thing about it was that it was on the sweet side, so after a few modifications I think I've got the perfect cornbread. 

Perfectly Moist Cornbread 

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
½ cup sugar
2 ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg 

Preheat oven to 375, and spray an 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray.  In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients.  Add the egg, milk and vegetable oil and stir until just combined.  Pour batter into pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

    like a little sweetness in my bread
