This ain’t sweet cornbread, so if you’re looking for Marie Callender-type cornbread, keep looking.
1 cup corn meal
1/4 cup sugar (and even this is a bit much)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup Crisco
Melt a little bacon grease in a cast iron skillet. Swish it all around and coat that bitch. Pour batter in there. Bake at 425* for about 20-25 minutes. Have some butter ready and eat it as soon as it comes out of the oven. THE BEST.
