We love a good skillet of old fashioned, Southern cornbread. This cornbread is sweet and moist, and not at all dry. It is delicious with just a pat of fresh butter and darn right fantastic in a bowl of beans ! Your family is sure to love this recipe.

Ingredients

1 c
cornmeal mix
1/2 c
self rising flour
1/4 c
pure cane sugar
1/2 c
cultured buttermilk
1/4 c
oil
2 large
eggs (beaten)
2 Tbsp
bacon grease
*** substitute for self-rising flour, for each cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In an 8 inch skillet add 2 tbsp. bacon grease. Use a paper towel or brush to coat the sides of skillet. Put it into oven and turn on to 350 degrees. Pre-heat for 10 minutes. ( You can cheat and put skillet on top of stove and heat till hot, but not smoking.) Heating the skillet forms a nice crust.
2
In a medium bowl combine cornmeal mix, flour and sugar. Mix it up. Now add buttermilk, beaten eggs and oil and stir to mix well.
3
Pour into hot skillet. Put into oven and bake 18-20 minutes @ 350 degrees. Do not over-bake as that will make it dry ! Remove from oven and slice into 6 even pieces.
4
Serve with a pat of fresh salted butter, if desired. Enjoy !
