DIRECTIONS

  • This is from a recipe my grandmother use to make in Texas.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Stir together the dry ingredients.
  • Blend in the butter using a pastry cutter (you can use your fingers) until the mixture is crumbly.
  • Add milk slowly until a soft, not to sticky, ball of dough is formed.
  • Turn the dough out on a floured surface and knead gently for about 1 minute.
  • Flatten the ball of dough and roll out into about a 1/2 inch thick round.
  • Place some butter (about a tablespoon) in a cast iron skillet.
  • Place iron skillet in oven just to melt the butter.
  • Remove the iron skillet as soon as the butter melts and swirl the butter to coat the bottom of the pan.
  • Carefully place the dough into the skillet.
  • Bake about 6 minutes, then flip the bread and bake another 6 minutes.
  • Variations: Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of bread after flipping. Spread a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon on top after flipping.
