This cornbread screams comfort food in every last bite... and, believe us, it's so yummy, you'll want to finish every last bite.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups white cornmeal
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3/4 to 1-1/4 cups boiling water (see Note)
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped cooked country ham
  • Vegetable oil
  • Softened butter

What to Do

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl; stir in half-and-half and 1 tablespoon oil. Gradually add boiling water, stirring until batter is consistency of oatmeal. After adding boiling water, stir in 1-1/2 cups finely chopped cooked country ham.
     
  2. Pour oil into a large heavy skillet to a depth of 1/2-inch; place over medium-high heat. Scoop batter into a 1/4-cup measure; drop into hot oil, and fry in batches 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Serve with softened butter.
     

Notes

The amount of boiling water needed varies depending on the type of cornmeal used. Stone-ground (coarsely ground) cornmeal requires more liquid.
