Both of my sister-in-laws parents were born in the mountains of North Carolina. This is her family recipe; couldn't believe how simple it is!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put corn oil or bacon grease in a 6” iron skillet and put your skillet in the oven to preheat to 400 degrees. While it's preheating, slightly beat eggs into milk.
  2. Sift together the corn meal, flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  3. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together.
  4. When the oil/oven is preheated, pour the oil or grease into the mixture, leaving a layer in the pan. Stir quickly. Pour batter in the pan, and bake for about 20 minutes or so, until when you stick a toothpick in it, it comes out clean.
