    Bev's Note:

    I found this recipe in Lee Lee's Recipe Box. The description to the recipe reads: "True Southern Cornbread is generally made with bacon dripping in an iron skillet - The result is a crusty bread like this one."

      I've been making it like this for years, except I put in some baking powder and TBS of sugar. There is a good hint thouge, place the cast iron skillet in the oven when you preheat the oven. Pull out when oven is hot and add the bacon drippings. Pour the batter in and cook.

      This is a very easy and quick cornbread to make. I also loved making it in the cast iron skillet. My DH said this tasted like it was from the south. Made for 1,2,3 Hit Wonders 2007.

      This is the best!! Certain parts of the South do not eat "sweet cornbread." If I want sweet, I'll eat cake! I personally like it so tart you know it is made with Buttermilk. If you can't get stone ground or coarse corn meal, just substitute 1/2 cup of grits for same amount of corn meal. After all, it's all corn!
