Recipe: Cornbread for luck in the New Year

FOX19 -

In the southern states of the USA, cornbread’s is thought to be good luck if eaten on New Year’s Day.  The color of cornbread is similar to the color of gold to symbolize wealth in the coming year.

My grandma  wasn’t from the south, but she always made buttermilk cornbread for New Year’s Day. I always loved her cornbread because it wasn’t dry and it was sweeter than most others.  Grandma had special ingredients she added, so I thought I would share.

I wish I had her old iron skillet, it would have made making cornbread that much more special on New Year’s Day. I hope you enjoy.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt

Grandma added the following:

  • 1 can of creamed corn
  • 1 box of vanilla pudding (dry)
  • 1/3 tsp vanilla 

Preheat oven 375 degrees
 
Melt butter

Then add eggs, milk and sugar mix well

Add baking soda, cornmeal, flour, salt, vanilla pudding, vanilla and creamed corn

Mix all ingredients together until you have a cake batter consistency, you might need to add a dash more of buttermilk

Grandma had her iron skillet, but use whatever baking pan you have (9 x12) spray pan with cooking spray

Bake for 35 minutes, until firm in the center, use toothpick or knife in center until it comes out clean
