DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and sugar.
  • (If baking powder or soda appear at all lumpy, sift them in).
  • Stir well to combine.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg, and oil.
  • Place the butter in a 9 or 10 inch skillet and place in the oven and heat until the butter melts and is sizzling seriously.
  • Tilt the pan to coat the sides of the skillet.
  • As the butter's melting, quickly pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and, using a wooden spoon, stir the wet and dry together with as few strokes as possible--- only as many as are needed to combine the two.
  • Don't beat it!
  • Scrape the batter into the hot, buttery skillet.
  • It should sizzle.
  • Place it in the oven immediately.
  • Bake until golden brown on top, about 25 to 30 minutes.
