Community Cookbook Cornbread

Sift three-fourths cup cornmeal, three-fourths cup flour, two and one-half teaspoonfuls baking powder, three-fourths teaspoonful salt, one tablespoonful sugar. Work in tablespoonful butter, then add three-fourths cup sweet milk, into which one or two eggs have been beaten. Pour into greased pans and bake in a moderate oven. If sour milk is used, take one and one-half teaspoonful baking powder and one-fourth teaspoonful soda.

From "The Community Cook Book" from the Class of Willing Workers of the Winter St. Baptist Church, Haverhill, MA. "A practical cook book, representative of the best cookery to be found in any of the more intelligent and progressive American communities."
