(aka base for killer 7-layer dip)

Serves 8

⅔ cup cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

¼ cup light brown sugar

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

Pinch black pepper

If you have it: 1 cup fresh corn, frozen corn or canned corn, drained

½ sour cream

1 (14.75-ounce) can creamed corn

1 stick butter, melted

1 egg

Heat the oven to 375°F.

Stir together the flour, cornmeal, light brown sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and pepper in a large bowl.

Whisk in sour cream, creamed corn, butter and egg until combined.

Pour the batter into a greased 8x8-inch baking pan. Bake until golden brown but still a tad jiggly in the center, 20 minutes. Let cool slightly in the pan before layering with Beans! Cheese! Salsa! Sour cream! Onions! Lettuce! (It makes the base for a KILLER 7-layer dip)
