1 1/2 cup sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup evaporated milk
1 tsp. vanilla
4 large eggs (white and yolks separated)
1/4 cup butter (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan.
Separate the eggs, putting the whites in a small bowl and the yolks in a medium bowl.
Combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder & salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
Add milk, vanilla and melted butter to the medium bowl with the yolks. Stir.
Pour the liquid mixture in to the dry mixture.
Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff.
Fold stiff egg whites into batter. Pour into the greased pan.
