Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal , medium grind (Note 1)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (plain / all purpose)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 cup canned creamed corn
  • 1/2 cup melted butter , unsalted
  • 2 eggs , lightly whisked
  • 3/4 cups milk

Baking

  • 1 - 2 tbsp butter , melted (for greasing & brushing)

Instructions

  • Place a skillet (Note 1) in the oven and preheat to 425F/220C while making the batter.
  • Place the Dry Ingredients in a bowl and mix.
  • Place Wet ingredients in a separate bowl and mix until combined.
  • Pour Wet into the Dry ingredients, mix until combined.
  • Take the skillet out of the oven.
  • Add the 1 tbsp of butter and swirl it around to coat the base and halfway up the sides (or use a brush to do this). Pour the batter in.
  • Turn oven down to 375F/190C, then bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the top is light golden brown and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean (or when you poke the top, it springs back).
  • Best served warm! It can be served in the skillet or turned out.

Notes

1. Sold in packets labelled as "Polenta" in Australia.
2. I used a 26cm/10" cast iron skillet. You can use a similar size cake tin or loaf pan.
3. This can be made ahead and reheated in the oven at 180C/350F for around 10 minutes. Turn it out of the skillet otherwise it will have a metallic flavour if you leave it in overnight.
