Southern Cornbread  
 
4  tablespoons cooking oil or better yet, bacon grease ( I know you are trying to reduce calories)
2  cups buttermilk
2  eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon soda
1   cup cornmeal
1/2 cup self-rising flour
 
Method:      
Preheat oven to 400-degrees. Place your cast iron skillet in the oven with the cooking oil or bacon grease while the oven is preheating. Just keep a close eye on it. You DO NOT want                         the grease to overheat. Then mix all of the ingredients together by hand. DO NOT BEAT. Mix the ingredients JUST enough to moisten them. Then pour the mixture in the skillet on
top  of the hot grease and cook for about 30 minutes until done.
