    KyAmy's Note:

    This is a very simple cornbread recipe from my dad's sister who lives in Danese, WV. I did discover, however, that "bread flour" is not the same as "self-rising flour" ... duh! As my aunt does, I use a cast-iron skillet and only use that for this specific baking need. Of course, if you do not have a cast-iron skillet then a 8x8 baking pan will do. The cornbread will rise about 1" but if you like a thicker cornbread then you'll want to add baking powder to get that additional rise. Also, while it's heating up, I'll put my skillet in the oven so the crust/bottom of the cornbread will have a nice (slight) crunch to it. If you prefer a softer cornbread just pour the mixture into the cold seasoned skillet or baking pan that has been coated in oil or baking spray. This recipe makes a great staple and easy meal with pinto beans, or crumbled up in a bowl with buttermilk poured over top of it -- that's how my dad likes it. ENJOY!!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-8

    Yield:

    slices ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 cups self-rising cornmeal
    • 1/4 cup self-rising flour
    • 1 -1 1/4 cup buttermilk (adjust for consistency)
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon salt (optional and to taste)
    • 1/4 cup sugar (optional and to taste)
    • oil (for skillet or pan) or cooking spray (for skillet or pan)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 450 degrees. Spray baking pan or coat skillet with drop or two of vegetable oil.
    2. 2
      Mix all ingredients (including optionals, if being used) together until well blended. (The 2 Tbsp of oil goes in the mixture, not just for the pan -- found this out AFTER my first batch!) May need to adjust amount of buttermilk to get the correct consistency. An additional 1/4 cup to get a more pliable mixture to pour into the skillet should work.
    3. 3
      Bake until golden brown on top and/or tests done.
