This cornbread is used to make the Cornbread and Pumpkin Challah Stuffing with Dried Fruit

 Makes 1 eight-inch square loaf

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
2 large eggs

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees with rack in center. Butter an 8-inch-square baking pan, and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, and baking powder. In a small bowl, whisk together milk and eggs until frothy. Pour the milk-and-egg mixture into the dry ingredients. Mix until the ingredients are just incorporated. Do not overmix; the batter should be lumpy. Pour the batter into prepared pan. Cook until top is golden brown and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out dry, 20 to 25 minutes.
