Parke County Cornbread

6 T. butter, melted

1 egg

1 cup milk

1¼ cups purple, blue, or red cornmeal

1 cup flour

⅓ cup sugar

1 T. baking powder

½ t. salt

Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease an 8-inch square pan. Whisk melted butter and egg, then add milk and whisk again. Stir in dry ingredients, just until Incorporated (it will be lumpy and very thick). Pour into pan and use spatula to spread evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes until top has browned. Test with a toothpick in the middle to make sure it’s cooked completely.
