1 cup flour- spelt, whole wheat, brown rice, or whatever
1 cup course ground cornmeal (Aspen Moon Farm Red Floriana cornmeal)
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk or rice milk or almond milk
3 TB Oil or butter(melted)
3-4 TB maple syrup or agave



1) Mix it all up.
2) Bake @ 400 for 20-25 min for a 9-10 inch pie pan, cast iron skillet, or muffin tin. Or lower temp to 375 for 35-40 min. for a loaf pan (otherwise the top will burn before the inside is done).  Oh, and do generously oil or butter your pan for that nice greasy southern diner influence- yum!
3) Serve with baked Winter Squash, Potato soup, or Roasted Carrots
