My Mom's Great Corn Bread

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup soft butter or butter flavored shortening
1 egg
1 cup milk

Combine dry ingredients in bowl; mix well. Cut in shortening until it's mealy looking. Beat egg and milk together; then add to dry ingredients until just blended. Pour into well buttered 8" square pan. If you want to add a little extra flavor to your cornbread, take some liquid bacon grease and brush the pan with that instead of butter. Bake in 400 oven for 25 minutes.

Serves 8-10
