Prep:
15 Min
Cook:
40 Min
Method:
Bake

Ingredients

1 1/2 c
cornmeal
3/4 c
flour
2 tsp
baking powder
1/8 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
1
egg, slightly beaten
3 Tbsp
bacon grease + enough to grease the iron skillet
1/2 + c
buttermilk

Step-By-Step

1Mix the dry ingredients together.
2Add egg, bacon drippings. Slowly ad buttermilk until the mixture is soupy (sort of like cake batter, maybe a little thinner.)
3Grease iron skillet with bacon drippings, enough to give it a nice even coat. Put the greased iron skillet in the oven until it is really hot - a few minutes, before pouring in the batter. Bake at 400 for 30-40 minutes.
4I suppose you could make this in another oven safe dish, but I'm not sure how long you would cook it.
