POPCORN CORNBREAD

1 1/2 cups White’s Mill Popcorn Meal
1 cup Self Rising Flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar (optional)
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup sour cream
2 eggs (beaten)
5 tbsp. lard (melted) or butter/corn oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put some oil in your cornbread pan or in a 10″ skillet. Put the pan in the oven to get hot. Mix all dry ingredients in bowl. Mix the milk, sour cream and eggs in another bowl. Take the hot pan out of oven and mix the wet and dry ingredients. Once combined, this will rise quite fast, and over mixing will cause it to fail making for some heavy cornbread. Quickly spoon the batter into your cornbread pan or skillet. Bake for approximately 25 – 30 mins. Skillet 40 -45 mins. Serve hot with plenty of butter and enjoy the unique flavor of our popcorn without the bowl. Yes, it may sound odd, but we grind popcorn into a meal that adds a wonderful crunch and unique flavor to cornbread or anything else you want to try it on.
