DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put lard or shortening in baking pan or skillet. Place oven-proof skillet (a well-seasoned iron skillet works best) on rack and let shortening melt while mixing batter.
  • In large bowl, mix cornmeal, flour, eggs and buttermilk. When shortening is ready, pour into batter and blend well. Let batter rest for 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle dry cornmeal over hot grease left in bottom of skillet. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 40-50 minutes until top is nicely browned and bread tests done in center like a cake.
  • Cut in wedges and serve hot with plenty of butter. This is great with chili or a thick stew.
