Corn Bread

Adapted from the More-With-Less Cookbook, a Mennonite book devoted to frugal, simple food:

Wonderful Tasty Cornbread
great with honey

Preheat to 400 F.
Mix in a bowl:
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour (I used 3/4 whole wheat, 1/4 white)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup dry milk powder

Make a well in the mound and add:
2 eggs
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup oil

Stir just until smooth. Pour into an oiled pan and bake till nice and brown. (half and hour-ish)
Serve hot with butter, syrup, honey, or milk.
With frugality in mind, I used all powdered milk, instead of fresh, as the original recipe had it. I also added molasses, which I love in my bread.
