They have their pans greased-- now on to making the cornbread.
Notice how they use their hands. That is the way my best friend, Vicki
taught me to to make it.
Here is Alyssa putting them in the oven. Each one has their own iron skillet. Brother has a small one, Alyssa has a medium one, and I fix a large iron skillet!
Here they are with their cornbread cooling before wrapping it up to take it home.
I will try to give you Vickis recipe for cornbread but it is hard because she doesn't measure.
When she told me she would just say a little of this and a little of that. Vicki, if you read this and have any hints or changes leave a comment for everyone to read. She is the best cook ever!
This is absolutely the best cornbread you will ever eat.
Oh my goodness, this post is making my mouth water just thinking about it.
Grease Pan extra well.
(all measurements are approximate)
1-1/2 cups of self rising cornmeal
1/4 cup of Self rising flour
1/2 cup of shortening (Crisco)
Buttermilk & water
Put cornmeal & flour in bowl. Add shortning and mix with hands.
Add enough buttermilk to moisten. Stir with hand.
Add just a little water to make it just a little thinner.
Pour into iron skillet (any pan will do) but there is just something about an iron skillet.
Bake 500 degrees until brown. (approx. 20-25 minutes)
Hope you enjoy!!
