- Size 10 Iron skillet
- Large bowl Spoon for mixing
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees
- 2 cups cornmeal
- 3 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon soda
- 4 tablespoons of bacon grease or one stick unsalted butter
Mix together cornmeal, salt and soda. Then mix 1 cup buttermilk in the dry ingredients. Gently beat each egg before adding on at a time to cornmeal batter and pour in the rest of the buttermilk (1 cup). Mix well.
On stove top: heat grease or butter in iron skillet until bubbly. Be careful not to scorch. Cut off stove top heat and immediately pour cornmeal batter into skillet. Batter should sizzle a little.
Very carefully put skillet/batter in preheated oven and cook for 25-30 minutes.
