Here's a success, made about half an hour ago, as written in an e-mail to a friend of mine.
"make this, or i'll key your car
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1 tblsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp thick hot sauce
- 1/2 cup cheese curds (or normal cheese, if you're not cool)
- 1/2 cup grated cheese
Mix all this, except the grated cheese, and toss in a small oven-proof skillet or a loaf pan. Put grated cheese on top. Bake at 350 for 40-ish minutes (check after half an hour). Eat when stupid hot, with lots of butter. Send me an e-mail detailing just how much better your life is as a result.
Now if you don't make this, don't expect any nasty surprises for your car. If you know Deluca, you know the revenge that has to be hadfor a certain comment made blocking a certain appendage of mine at a party he held. Also, if you don't have an oven proof skillet, check your attic or your grandma's house. I made this using a seventy year old cast iron I got from her, and it's my favorite tool in the kitchen.
