How to make it

  • Instructions:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the shortening or butter in a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan. Heat the pan in the oven until the shortening is melted.
  • Sift into a large mixing bowl the cornmeal, flour, sugar and salt. Combine the buttermilk and baking soda in a measuring cup, then stir into the dry ingredients until combined. Add the melted shortening from the loaf pan; stir to combine. Pour the batter into the hot loaf pan and bake until golden brown, 50 to 60 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool before slicing.

    Being a Yank, I like my cornbread to have corn & roasted peppers in it, even though it's a little sweet. A woman who worked for my gparents (Southern) would pour bacon fat into a cast iron skillet, then the corn bread batter into the skillet after preheating the fat in the skillet. OMG was it divine. Have Bookmarked this & 5vd. Thanks for the share.
