Our Sweet Texas Corn bread is light and fluffy and goes perfectly with Grandpa Nelson's Chili.  We all love to top it with some butter and a little honey to complete the taste.  Representing the Texas side of the family does have its perks, and the rest of the gang  can't ever seem to get enough at dinner, wanting more at breakfast too!


1 cup cornmeal
3 cups flour
1 1/3 cup sugar
2 Tbs baking powder
1 tsp salt
2/3 olive oil
6 Tbs butter-melted
4 eggs
2 1/4 cups milk


Combine dry ingredients.  Combine wet ingredients. Mix all ingredients together, adding the melted butter last.  It will look creamy and pour like a cake batter.  Pour into a 9x13 inch glass baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes.  The house will smell wonderful!  Cool slightly before cutting if you can wait : )
