4 large eggs
1 cups low-fat buttermilk
1 cups 1-percent milk
2 cups yellow cornmeal (stone-ground works best)
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Place rack in middle position and heat oven to 375 degrees. Brush or lightly spray a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with olive oil.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs with a wire whisk, then whisk in buttermilk and milk until well combined. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt together. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and then pour egg and milk mixture into well; stirring with whisk until just combined; stir in olive oil.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until top is golden brown and edges have pulled away from baking dish sides, 30-40 minutes.
Transfer baking dish to wire rack and cool slightly. Cut into 16 pieces and serve warm.
Cook's note: Try this cornbread in turkey stuffing or dressing.
