DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat a 8 or 10 inch heavy skillet (seasoned black iron is great!) in 375°F oven.
  • Or, grease an 8x8x2-inch baking pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine boiling water with Cornmeal Mix. Stir in well.
  • Allow to sit about 3 to 5 minutes to absorb the water and burst the corn meal.
  • Combine this mixture well with the remaining ingredients except baking soda.
  • Add buttermilk slowly.
  • Batter should be smooth and wet, but don't over mix.
  • When mixed, just before pouring batter up, mix in the pinch of baking soda.
  • Immediately pour batter into preheated oven and hot skillet or pan.
  • Bake for about 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from pan and serve.
