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
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
