Southern Spoon Bread with Apple Butter

I thought, to celebrate Thanksgiving, I would post a very old recipe that was my Grandmama Elliott and Great-Uncle Perry's favorite. It's very old and very basic. Something that could be made on the farm out of items on hand. Probably part of some of the oldest Thanksgivings in the south...

1 cup Yellow Cornmeal
1 ½ t Baking Powder
½ t salt
2 Eggs, beaten
3 T Butter, melted
2 ¼ cups Milk

Stir dry ingredients together. In a greased one quart casserole pour eggs and butter. In a medium-sized pan heat milk to a boil. Stir to avoid scorching. As it starts to boil, sprinkle in the dry ingredients, stirring vigorously with a wooden spoon. Cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes as it thickens. Mix with eggs in casserole. Bake at 425 for 45 minutes. Serve from casserole with a spoon. Eat with a fork!

And what better condiment to go with this than Good Old Fashioned Apple Butter!
