Ingredients

1 tablespoon bacon fat, or vegetable oil or shortening
2 cups cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.


Place bacon fat (or fat of choice) into a 9" cast iron skillet (usually square, but round works, too).


Put pan into oven to heat.


Blend dry ingredients.


Mix wet ingredients and add to dry.


Mix until just combined -- a few lumps are okay.


Remove hot pan from oven and pour in batter. It should sizzle.


Bake until golden brown (approximately 15-20 minutes).


Pairs Well With


Notes

This is true Southern cornbread, no sugar or flour included. If you live north of the the Mason-Dixon (or if you didn't grow up on it), you probably won't like it.
