8 tbsp of unsalted butter.

Half a cup of granulated sugar.

One cup of yellow cornmeal.

Two large eggs.

One cup of all-purpose flour.

Salt, to taste.


Step 1

Before beginning the recipe, be sure to preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Step 3

In an oven-safe skillet, set over medium heat, melt the butter.
