1 recipe



1-1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup all-purpose flour (or use all cornmeal for gluten free)
1/4 cup bacon fat or
vegetable oil
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1-1/2 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs


Heat oven to 450 degrees. In a 10" iron skillet, pour in fat and put in the oven while you're mixing the other ingredients.

Mix dry ingredients together with a whisk in a large bowl. Measure buttermilk in a large measuring cup and add both eggs and whisk. Add wet to dry and mix vigorously for 30 seconds. When the oven and skillet are heated, add hot oil to better and mix thoroughly. Pour immediately back into hot pan and bake 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve warm with butter and honey.
