Grandma's Buttermilk Cornbread
Cornbread is best baked in a cast iron skillet but, if you don't have one, a square Pyrex dish will do just fine. This recipe works well for muffins or corn sticks, too.
Stir together the dry ingredients and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the beaten egg, buttermilk and oil. Quickly combine the cornmeal mixture with the buttermilk mixture, stirring just enough to moisten.
Pour at once into hot skillet, pan, muffin tins or corn stick molds. Bake about 12 to 15 minutes for muffins or corn sticks, and 18 to 20 minutes for pan or skillet. Cornbread will begin to pull away from sides of pan.
Makes about a dozen muffins, corn sticks or pieces. Enjoy hot with lots of butter.
