This is the type of cornbread my husband grew up on. I changed a few things, that I believe makes it even better...BUTTER!!! I also add some corn meal to the skillet as I'm heating it up...gives the bread a nice
crunch...

Ingredients

1 c
self rising cornmeal
1/2 c
self rising flour
1 - 1 1/4 c
buttermilk
2
eggs
1/4 c
butter
1 Tbsp
oil
cornmeal
about a tablespoon

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degree F.

Place butter and oil in iron skillet. Place skillet in the oven for roughly 10 - 15 minutes till butter is melted and pan is good and hot. Sprinkle pan with cornmeal after about 5 minutes ( once butter is melted ) Being careful not to burn yourself. Cornmeal is optional ( I like it as it gives it a nice crunch ).

If you don't have an iron skillet; grease an 8 inch baking pan, and bake till golden.
2
Combine all ingredients and mix well.

Pour batter into heated skillet. Should sizzle as it hits the pan.

Bake between 34 - 40 minutes, or until golden.

Enjoy with a big slather of butter.

This is not a real thick cornbread. It's the thickness my husband prefers.
