Corn Bread Recipe ...goes real well with chili!

Some folks have asked me for my cornbread recipe... so here goes:

1 1/4 cups of yellow cornmeal
1 cup flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup shortening
3 Tbsp. molasses
1 egg - beaten
1 cup milk

Mix the wet ingredients in one bowl & set aside. In another bowl... blend together the dry ingredients then cut in the shortening with a pastry blender. Add the wet ingredients & mix just until everything is blended... don't over mix.

Pour into a greased 8 x 8" square pan & bake at 425 degrees for 20-27 min.... until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

That sounds yummy! It's finally cold enough here to make chili and now I can make cornbread to go with it. Well, unless I burn it, which is very likely.
