Ingredients

  • 1  Cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1  Cup  yellow cornmeal
  • 1  Tablespoon  baking powder
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  salt
  • 1  Cup  milk
  • 1/4  Cup  maple syrup
  • 1/4  Cup  butter, melted
  • eggs

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8”x8” square, or 9” round baking pan.

In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt until well combined.

In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, maple syrup, melted butter, and eggs. Add to the dry ingredients. Stir until just moistened.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until lightly golden, and a cocktail stick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and serve warm.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
