    AzArlie's Note:

    This recipe was the one my mother used, and her mother before her. Beyond that I can't go! It spoiled me for anything calling itself "cornbread" that has flour or sweeteners in it -- I call those "corn cake." This is great with chili, stew, and other hearty dishes. My dad used to crumble it up into buttermilk and eat it with a spoon. It's a requirement for our family's New Years Day dinner, along with the roast pork and black-eyed peas. It's also the main ingredient in Thanksgiving/Christmas/anytime turkey stuffing.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 425°F.
    2. 2
      Put first 5 ingredients in mixing bowl. (If it makes you feel better, go ahead and mix the dry ingredients, whisk the eggs into the buttermilk, then combine dry/wet ingredients).
    3. 3
      Mix with large spoon or whisk.
    4. 4
      Put bacon grease in well-seasoned 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium to high heat.
    5. 5
      Just as the bacon grease is about to start smoking, pour it into the other ingredients, stirring as you pour (if you can manage it). Leave enough in the skillet to coat the bottom and sides.
    6. 6
      Pour entire mixture into the skillet.
    7. 7
      Place skillet on middle rack of oven; bake until cornbread is springy in the middle, browned and pulling away from the skillet on the sides (about 15-20 minutes).
    8. 8
      Remove from oven and invert skillet over serving plate. If cornbread does not drop easily, you may need to run an icing spatula or even a flexible metal egg-turner around/under it so it comes loose.
    9. 9
      Recipe halves well, just remember you can't cut the bacon grease by half because you still need to coat the skillet.
    10. 10
      Serve hot, with plenty of butter. Or margarine, if you insist.

      This cornbread was really delicious! We had it with white chicken chili and I love the fact that it doesn't have sugar in it. And I'm sure it would have tasted even better, had I followed the recipe exactly. We don't really eat bacon that much, so I just used butter and melted it in a 9x9 pan in the oven before mixing in the rest of the ingredients (my skillet isn't oven-safe).. The whole family loved this and I will definitely make it again!

      We made this cornbread for a get-together with a gluten free friend, and it turned out great! I used yellow cornmeal, because that was all I had on hand. Also, I used butter instead of the bacon grease. The cornbread was moist and tasty, and went well with chili. Also very easy to make!

      A great southern recipe. I have made these many times over. Very easy and delicious. I always use a preheated cast iron skillet when making cornbread for a nice crisp crust. Thanks for sharing.
