martha white with hot rize cornmeal
buttermilk--neither my mother nor i actually measure anything so in this case, you just add some buttermilk until the batter is somewhat runny but not thin, still pretty thick and able to pour into your skillet.
How to Make Mama's Cornbread
1Combine meal and shortening and cut in and mash up real good with a fork.
3Pour in your buttermilk and stir good. Add buttermilk until the batter is runny enough to pour into your skillet, but you do not want it to get thin.
4Pour into a greased cast iron skillet and bake at 375-400 until golden brown (about 20-30 minutes)
5Let cool before trying to slice or flip out onto a plate.
