Pre-heat oven to 425.
Grease with shortening or Spray with Pam a 9" cast iron skillet or a round cake pan until well coated .
- Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs and vegetable oil. While Stirring add buttermilk until all dry ingredients are wet and mix is slightly moist, but still thick.
Note: If after stirring...mix is still too dry, add more buttermilk, remembering that it is cornbread and is supposed to be thicker than cake mix, but not as thick as cookie mix.
- Pour into skillet or cake pan and bake in pre-heated oven for approximately 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. If unsure insert a toothpick and when it comes out dry it is done. Do not over cook.
