Why I Love This Recipe
When I started to school at Ewing, a 9-grade school, Mrs. Eubanks was my Home Economics Teacher. We were required to keep a notebook of the foods we cooked. I found my Notebook from 1939, and this recipe for Hot Water Cornbread was in it.
Ingredients You'll Need
2-1/2 cups corn meal
1 tablespoon "lard"
2 teaspoons salt
boiling water -- enough to make thick mixture
1. Mix all dry ingredients together.
2. Add lard and then pour in boiling water--water must be boiling.
3. Shape mixture into patties (about 1 x 1-1/2 inches overall and fairly thin).
4. Fry until brown.
