How to Make Southern Cornbread MMB


  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.
