1 cup yellow cornmeal

1 cup all-purpose flour

2/3 cup sugar

3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and brush a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with vegetable oil.
  2. Whisk the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk the egg, vegetable oil and buttermilk, then fold into the dry ingredients with a rubber spatula until just combined.
  3. Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a rack and let cool 15 minutes before serving.
