Category: Grains, Breads

 Ingredients List

  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 1/2 c Sifted white cornmeal
  • 2 c Buttermilk
  • 3 tb Melted shortening or bacon
  • -grease
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1 ts Soda
  • 3 ts Baking powder


Beat eggs together until light. Add milk, shortening and salt.

Add meal, being careful in putting in, as meal varies and the batter should
be a medium batter. Beat smooth. Grease and heat 8-inch skillet until
grease (I use bacon grease) is smoking. I use no shortening, only bacon
grease. Sift in the baking powder and dissolve the soda in a spoonful of
cold water. Add to mixture, stir well and pour into smoking skillet. Bake
in a good hot oven until brown and crusty, about 15 to 20 minutes.
