Why I Love This Recipe

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


Ingredients You'll Need

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


Directions

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
