1 qt • Milk, Whole • Scalded
1 cup • Corn Meal, White
Bring milk to a rapid boil, add corn meal.

4 each • Eggs, Large, Divided
4 oz • Butter - unsalted
3 tbsp • Sugar
1 tsp • Salt
Stir in yolks, butter and dry ingredients, until well incorporated.

Beat egg whites until stiff, fold into corn meal mix using a rubber spatula, taking care not to knock the air out of the mix.

pour into a buttered heavy bottomed casserole & bake for one hour at 350 F
The Spoon Bread might not seem done, it should giggle a little, have brown edges and have a great aroma. A tooth pick inserted into the center should come out clean, if not another five to seven minutes won't hurt it either way.

The first time I had this, Edna cooked it in the bowl she made it in.

* Edna was the Chef at Oak Hill Farm, Aldie, Virginia
