Fresh Corn Bread

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Combine dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture is crumbly. Add corn kernels, egg and milk and stir just until combined. Turn into a greased 8-inch round or square baking pan. Bake at 400 degrees F. for about 30-35 minutes or until set and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
