Corn Bread

From the blue and orange box, this recipe isn’t exactly the same as what is on the Albers box today but it’s very similar. I recently ran out and haven’t replaced the box for comparison’s sake, but from the Albers website it seems the main differences are the modern amount of baking powder has been reduced, and the shortening has been replaced by oil.

Corn Bread (Albers Box)


1 cup flour (sifted)

1 cup Albers Yellow Corn Meal

1/4 cup sugar

5 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt


1 cup milk*

2 tablespoons shortening, melted

1 egg, well beaten. Combine wet and dry ingredients quickly, Pour into shallow greased pan.

Bake: 20 minutes in a hot oven (450º F)

*When evaporated milk (Carnation) is used take half the amount of milk specified and dilute with an equal volume of water.
