Bobota - Cornbread - Lenten Recipe

2 cups of cornmeal
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 cup of sugar
4-5 tablespoons of fresh orange juice (juice of 1/2 large orange)
1/4 cup of corn oil
about 1 cup of lukewarm water

Preheat oven to 350°F (175-180°C)

Whisk together the cornmeal, sugar, and baking powder to combine well. In a separate bowl, mix oil, orange juice, and water, and stir until well blended.

Add liquids to the dry ingredients and stir.
Pour batter into a well-oiled 9-inch pie pan and bake for 40-45 minutes. Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the pan. It should come out dry.

Cool at least 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm or at room temperature.
