Corn Bread
1 cup yellow corn meal
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup yogurt, plain
1 tsp sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp lemon zest

Loaf Cake Mold, oiled

Mix the corn meal, flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Whisk milk, yogurt, sugar, egg and olive oil in another bowl. Stir into the dry ingredients and whisk. Pour the batter into the oiled Loaf Cake Mold.

Preheat the oven to 400° F (200° C). Place the mold on the middle rack. Bake for about 45 minutes. Place the Cornbread on the wire rack so it cools. Then slice this delicious Turkish Cornbread and serve.

Mix all the Dill Butter ingredients to get it creamy. Place on a plastic wrap and give it a cylinder shape. Keep in the fridge for at least one hour before using.

Hi Annie,
My mum and me used to have Egg Sandwich when we got a chance to be together as a light lunch in Istanbul. Whenever I prepare it here for myself I always remember my mum:)
