The 12th annual Berea Spoonbread Festival has plenty of activities, 5-K Run, 1 Mile Walk, crafts, free concerts and events to please everyone in the family. Located in the heart of Berea, Kentucky, the Folk Arts And Crafts Capitol Of Kentucky.
Have you ever wondered how it's made?
- 1 cup white cornmeal
- 2 cups water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup cold milk
- 2 large eggs, well beaten
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
In a large saucepan, combine cornmeal with 2 cups of water; add 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring mixture to a boil then lower the heat; cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. The mixture will be very stiff. Remove from heat and slowly stir in 1 cup of cold milk. Stir in the beaten eggs and melted butter. Preheat oven to 400° and heat a greased 1 1/2 to 2-quart baking dish or 8-inch square baking dish. Pour the well blended batter into the hot baking dish; bake for about 40 minutes, or until firm in the middle and nicely browned. Serve hot, straight from the baking dish. This quantity provides 4 to 6 small servings; for more, double the recipe.
