Cornbread

Corn bread recipes with oil or butter are ok, but the bacon fat in this gives it a little tang that is undeniable.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Combine all dry ingredients except the cheese, and whisk until blended.

  • Whisk or stir until well mixed, but not completely smooth, just like a pancake batter.
  • Add the cheese and stir to blend.
  • Pour the batter into a lightly greased round cake pan (for pie-like slices) or into a 9" square pan.
  • Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    Thanks, Bill, for a very good recipe. As we don't like a sweet cornbread, I deleted the sugar. However, we do like a crisp cornbread, so I did add grits. Just the right consistency for us. Thanks again, Bill.

    I don't know what rendered bacon fat is, but I used some I had saved up, and it worked. The bacon taste was stronger the next day. I made this with pepper jack cheese, and still couldn't taste the cheese much, but the peppers did add some nice color. I liked it.

    This was pretty good cornbread, but not the best I've ever had. I couldn't really taste the cheese that much. If I make this again I may try pepper jack cheese for more flavor.

    One of two of us like corn bread. Good news, The cook is the one who likes it. Good recipe. However I still am searching for one we will both like. The cheese addition helped.
