    I usually use 1 and a half teaspoons of salt for every cup of flour or cornmeal. My cornbread recipe:
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1 cup cornmeal
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    one egg
    1 1/3 cup milk
    1/4 cup canola oil
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Add egg and milk. Mix. Put an iron skillet on the stove on high. (I think my skillet is a 10" one). When hot, put in the oil. Pour batter into the pan. Immediately put into hot oven. Bake for 25 minutes. When done, turn out onto a wire rack or a dishtowel. I eat the leftovers in a bowl with buttermilk. Yum.
