Famous Dave's Corn Bread
Copycat Recipe

1 3/4 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup whole milk
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 tablespoons honey

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Grind the cornmeal at high speed in a food processor for 5 minutes or until some of it has become flour.  Pour all of the ground cornmeal into a large bowl with the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda and mix.  Use an electric mixer on medium speed to cream together the eggs, sugar, shortening and vanilla.  Pour the wet ingredients into the dry stuff and add the remaining ingredients.  Stir together with a rubber spatula until smooth.  Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper muffin cups.  Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full with batter; then bake the muffins for 18-20 minutes or until golden.  Remove from oven and take a cold stick of butter and rub over the top of the rolls until each is coated.  Makes 12-16 muffins.  Serve plain or with cinnamon honey butter.
