Preparation / Directions:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the cornmeal and stir until well mixed. In another bowl combine the milk, eggs, honey or maple syrup, and the butter or bacon drippings. Add the liquids to the dry ingredients and stir just until all are moistened. Pour the batter into an oiled 8 inch square baking pan and bake about 20 minutes or until done in the center and lightly browned. To test for doneness insert a toothpick or cake tester in the center. If it comes out dry the corn bread is done.
