This was different from any cornbread I have ever had. Simple and easy to make. We loved it. I will be making it again. Thanks for the recipe.
That brought back good memories. I made these successfully ever just a minute ago. I did add an egg to make them puff up. Just like Mama and Granny used to make. Thanks!
Not bad, simple. I just wanted to add that I use fat to fry rather than oil. that’s what I’ve always known people to use around my neck of the woods.
Save bacon grease, ham grease, usually keep it in a jar or coffee can. sometimes ill mix them, little oil, little fat. it adds flavor to an otherwise pretty bland side.
I’ll also throw in some seasoning like Old Bay to give it a little flavor. This works well too if you want something simple to bread and fry your fish in.
2/3 cup cornmeal
1/3 cup self-rising flour
1/3 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 large egg
oil for frying (I used about 3 tbsp coconut oil, but you can use whatever you like)
Combine the first 4 ingredients together in a bowl, mixing well.
Heat oil in skillet and drop by spoonfuls into oil.
Cook till brown on one side and flip (it looks kind of like a pancake) to brown on the other side.
Place on a plate with paper towels and blot any excess oil.
