Grandma's Buttermilk Cornbread

After my mom looked over Grandma's Cornbread Dressing she did verify that on occasion or when she had all the ingredients Grandma did indeed make a buttermilk cornbread to use in her dressing. I was able to acquire the recipe and had to make the correct measurements. When we cook we usually do things by eye and taste, measurement wise. So here, after figuring out exact measurements is Grandma's Buttermilk Cornbread! Enjoy, and make sure you cut a little piece fresh out of the oven and throw some butter on it. While your enjoying remember life can be simple and happiness can be as small as a fresh piece of cornbread straight out of the oven!


2 Cups Yellow Cornmeal
1 Cup Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 Tablespoon Sugar or Honey
1 1/2 Teaspoons Salt
2 Eggs
1 3/4 Cup Buttermilk
2 Tablespoons Butter
2 Tablespoons Bacon Grease

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Mix cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt in large mixing bowl. Stir to mix. Add eggs. Add buttermilk, stir until mixed. Set aside for at least 5 minutes to help batter rise.

After 5 minutes, add butter and bacon grease to 13x9 pan. Place in oven just until melted, make sure you watch this carefully, as the butter can burn very quickly! If you don't have bacon grease available increase butter by 2 tablespoons.

After fats have melted add cornbread batter. Spread evenly in pan. Bake for 15 minutes until browned on top.
