Mary’s Southern Corn Bread


Mary’s Southern Corn Bread

2    cups self rising corn meal

1/2 cup shortening

1 lg. egg

1  1/2 cups buttermilk

mix all together well

Heat iron skillet in oven with almost 1/2 cup of Crisco oil  at 400 degrees until screaming hot. When skillet is hot ,  add 1/4 cup of hot grease in  mix stir pour in, bake 400 degrees until golden brown. If skillet is really hot you will have a really nice crispy crust If over baked it will be drier. Hope you will try it and enjoy. My brother in law says I make the best cornbread he ever eat.  Now us southern folks, we don’t like sweet corn bread , so you won’t find no sugar. Sugar may be added if you like.

This is what’s on my Kitchen table tonight. Check back soon to see what’s cooking.
