Cornbread could be considered a southern classic. It is an easy quick bread that can be paired with many crock pot meals on a busy day. I recommend doing this in a cast iron. You will also need bacon grease for the pan (or vegetable oil if bacon grease isn’t available, I understand not everyone has a mason jar filled with it next to thier stove).
1.5 Cups of Cornmeal
1/2 Cup of flour
1 Tablespoon of Sugar
1 Teaspoon of Salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
1/3 cup of bacon grease or vegetable oil
1.5 cups of buttermilk
First thing, put grease in a cast iron, about three tablespoons and put it in the oven at 425 to preheat.
Now…Grab a large bowl :
Mix dry ingredients with the grease…
Then take the buttermilk and mix with eggs, I forgot to take a pic with the eggs mixed. So you have to use your imagination on this one.
Now combine the buttermilk/egg with the dry mix. Stir till just combined.
Now, here comes the fun part. Take that hot cast iron and pour in the mixture (make sure the oven is fully preheated) It will sizzle, this is what gives it a good crust.
You can see it is frying. Don’t worry about the grease. It’s good for you. Now bake for about 25-30 minutes at 425!
