~blushes -- clears throat~
ANYWAY, we're practically vegetarian here, verging on the vegan, and we don't have butter or milk or, as you may guess, buttermilk on a regular basis.
We do have a daughter who keeps chickens, so we have eggs.
So tonight we took a notion to have cornbread with our bean soup, and I made it thus:
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1-2 Tablespoons cooking oil
- dairy-free margarine
Use more or less salt to taste.
It was surprisingly good. Charlie said it reminded him of his grandmother's cornbread. He didn't say whether or not he liked it. He's a diplomatist.
