- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350F. Butter a 13 by 9-inch baking dish.
- Heat milk and butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. When milk begins to steam, whisk in cornmeal and cook, whisking constantly, until thoroughly mixed. Remove from heat and cool until thickened slightly.

- Bake 30 to 40 minutes, until golden brown on top. Serve hot with butter.
