This is the cornbread recipe my ex-husband and MIL use to make the cornbread for cornbread dressing.

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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix the dry ingredients together.
2
Add egg, bacon drippings. Slowly ad buttermilk until the mixture is soupy (sort of like cake batter, maybe a little thinner.)
3
Grease 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.
4
I suppose you could make this in another oven safe dish, but I'm not sure how long you would cook it.
