DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400. Place a 10-inch cast iron skillet in oven for 30 minutes.
  • In large bowl combine flour, cornmeal, salt, baking powder and sugar. Make a well in the center and add milk, eggs and melted butter. Stir just until moistened.
  • Remove skillet from oven and add bacon fat to skillet. Swirl around to coat bottom and sides, then pour in cornbread mixture. Smooth the top with a spatula, then place in oven and bake about 25 minutes, or until brown.
  • If you like, you can spread 2 tablespoons of butter on top of hot cornbread to melt.
