Southern girl's cornbread

I rarely wear my 'Southern Girl' badge as proudly as when there's cornbread in the oven. This recipe came from my mom, and really can't be beat.

1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup plain yogurt or buttermilk (or plain milk, if you don't have either)
2 eggs, beaten

Mix the dry. Mix the wet. Pour wet into dry and stir til just mixed. Pour into cast iron skillet. Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Serve warm, drizzled with honey or with a big scoop of chili or chicken a la king over it!
