Number of Servings: 16


    2 Tbsp melted butter
    2 tbsp applesauce
    3/4 cups buttermilk (use sour milk)
    1 egg
    2 Tbsp sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
    1/4 cup ap flour
    1/4 cup whole wheat flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda


Preheat oven to 400. and melt your butter in small casserole while the oven preheats.

In a large bowl combine the buttermilk, eggs, sugar and salt. Use a whisk to mix it up really well. Pour in the melted margarine, leaving about a tsp. of it left in the hot pan. Finally add the cornmeal, flour and baking soda. Whisk again until the batter is mostly smooth. Turn the batter into the hot skillet or pan, on top of the little bit of margarine you saved in it. Carefully put the pan back into the oven. Bake the cornbread at 400 for about 20 minutes. It will be golden brown and the edges will pull away from the sides of the pan. Remove the pan from the oven and let it cool a little while before cutting.
