It appears that my last post caught a little bit of attention and there was a request for the Corn Bread recipe. The recipe comes from an old edition of the Australian Women's Weekly New Cookbook. Not so new now, obviosuly, as this was my Mother's copy that I nicked from her - and the book is dated 1978!!

Anyway, for everyone that wanted the recipe and even for those that didn't ask, I've posted it below together with my own Herbed Butter recipe.

Corn Bread
60g Butter
1 Cup Cornmeal / Polenta
1 Cup Self Raising Flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Cup Milk
1 Egg
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Put Cornmeal in a large mixing bowl. Sift Flour and baking powder together into the bowl. Mix all dry ingredients together. Heat milk and butter together in a pan until butter melts. Pour into flour and mix well. Add in egg and mix the whole mixture well. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake in a pre-heated 220oC oven for 25 minutes or till done.

Whipped Herb Butter
100 g Butter
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Rosemary
1 tsp basil

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Beat Butter on high speed until light and creamy
Pipe onto serving bowls

Easy Schmeasy! Hope you enjoy it.

Older recipe books are a real treasure. Something about them that brings not only great dishes but also great memories. This really is a nice recipe for corn bread. Thanks for posting it Dharm!
