Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp sugar (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tbsp bacon dripping
2 eggs, beaten
1-1/3 cup buttermilk


Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl, mix well. Combine the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and whisk well. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture and gently mix. Do not overmix.


Pour bacon dripping into a cast iron skillet. Stick into oven to melt. Remove from oven and pour drippings into cornbread batter, leaving a small amount in the skillet. Mix well. Pour into hot skillet and stick back in oven.


Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and done.
