corn bread

it's that time of year. lots of soup, and with that soup, a skillet of corn bread. after lots of experimenting i have come up with a recipe that i love. as my dad would say "it's so good it makes ya wanna slap yo mama". yeah, he really says stuff like that. i should defend him by saying he (like myself) was born and raised in southern louisiana.

mandi's corn bread

1 C organic corn meal (really shoot for organic with any corn products- as it is such a heavily modified crop)
2/3 C whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 C milk
3/4 C plain yogurt (get a nice sour one- like a greek)
1/4 C organic coconut oil
1 T ground flax mixed in 3 T water (or 1 egg)
(i keep a jar of flax seed in the refrigerator and when i need some meal, i grind it up in a coffee grinder. the seed lasts longer than the meal.)

bake in a well seasoned and greased up cast iron skillet on 375' for about 15-20 minutes. that's when i start checking.

i would have taken a picture, but it was gone really fast.

because it's really good.

it's 'slap yo mama' good!

***disclaimer*** i am in no way encouraging slapping your mama - you hear that all you 3 year olds out there?

I made this today and, oh my! The coconut oil in this is heavenly--you don't even need to put butter on it. Thank you for this recipe. It's a keeper!
