Recipe by The BLESSED Chef

This recipe was my Grandfathers passed on to me.. It is different from the recipes you find on the bags of cornmeal. Bake a cake of this in a 8" round cast iron skillet and make a pot of Pinto Beans and you got a meal! I prefer the recipe with that has buttermilk in it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix cornmeal and flour together. Cut in Crisco (with a fork) till like coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk and enough Whole Milk to make mixture smooth (but still somewhat stiff -) Stir thoroughly. Pour into thoroughly greased and dusted with cornmeal 8" cast iron skillet. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 450 for 35-40 minutes until golden brown.
  2. (If you want a thick crust bake for app 50-55 minutes at app 430-Just keep an eye on it!).
  3. NOTE:You can bake in a 9x9 Pyrex dish if you do not have a cast iron skillet-just make sure you grease it and sprinkle it real good with cornmeal before adding mixture or it will stick!
