Servings: 8-10


1/3 to 1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
Milk, as needed
2 cups cornmeal
2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
6 tsp. baking powder
1 to 2 cups fresh vegetables, finely chopped (optional)


In a very large bowl, cream the shortening and sugar.

Mix in the eggs.

Stir in some milk (maybe a cup or so).

Add cornmeal and mix well.

Let this mixture rest for 10 minutes while you have a cup of tea.

Then add some more milk (maybe another cup or so).

Sift together the remaining dry ingredients and gradually add them to the mixture along with more milk as needed. Add enough milk to get a thick batter (like muffins or a thick cake batter).

If you want, add the vegetables.

Bake in a greased 9x13 pan at 350F. It is done when it cracks on top (approximately 45 minutes).

Slice and top with butter and honey, apple butter, apple sauce or eat it in a bowl with milk and maple syrup.
