  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Butter a 9-inch square pan.
  2. Use an electric mixer to combine the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat in the eggs slowly, one at a time. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well to incorporate.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
