Aunt Eleanor's Cornbread

½ cup sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
2 eggs

Mix together by hand with a wire whip, then add the following.

1 cup corn meal
1 cup flour (unbleached is best)
2 teaspoons baking powder (not baking soda)
½ teaspoon salt

Mix well with a wooden spoon. This will be a bit stiff.
Add 1 cup milk, stirring slowly with the spoon then use the wire whip to mix well.

Pour into a 9 x 9 inch pan. It can be lightly greased if you wish.
Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees.
If you use a convection oven, the cornbread turns out lovely.
