Serves 1 loaf | Prep Time | Cook Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 TB (aka 1 1/2 tsp) baking powder
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
6 TB lard or shortening, at room temperature
3/4 cup buttermilk


Preheat the oven to 400' F and grease a large (10") cast-iron skillet


Combine the dry ingredients. Stir in the shortening and blend (use a fork or pastry blender) until you have fine crumbs. Add the buttermilk and blend until smooth.


Heat up your skillet on the stove. While that's going on....on a floured surface, roll out the dough into a circle, about 9" wide (a bit smaller than your skillet)


Place into your hot, greased skillet and cook for about 5 minutes per side over a medium low heat


Then put the whole thing in the oven, skillet and all, and bake for about 15 minutes


Pairs Well With


Notes

Pan De Campo is Texas' state bread. This is the bread of cowboys. It's kinda like the biscuit version of cornbread....made in a cast-iron skillet and all. If

A dash of local for every season
