In a small bowl, thoroughly mix 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal, 1/4 cup white cornmeal mix, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder. Bring milk to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and quickly add the cornmeal mixture. Stir the cornmeal mixture rapidly into the milk, so that no clumps form. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until it forms a medium-thick mush. Remove the cornmeal mush from the stove, and transfer it to a large mixing bowl. Add 1/2 stick butter or margarine, melted. Stir. Add 2 well-beaten eggs, and stir thoroughly. Now, use an electric mixer to beat the spoonbread mixture for about 5 minutes, until it is quite smooth and has a lot of air incorporated into it. Spray a 1-quart sized casserole dish with oil spray. Pour the spoonbread mixture into the casserole dish and bake in a hot oven (400 degrees) for 20 minutes, or until it puffs up and is delicately brown. Serve immediately with butter. Yum! This dish is steeped in Southern tradition. I wanted all of the Kentucky Derby party givers to have this recipe, in case they want to use it at a Derby party!!!
