Recipe for Texas Cornbread


    Texas Cornbread

    Source: Mary Stringer, East Texas

    Mary is from East Texas and cornbread there is just that - made with more meal than flour. Her mother's recipe is:

    1 cup cornmeal
    1/2 cup flour
    1 scant tablespoon baking soda
    1 scant tablespoon salt
    2 eggs
    3 tablespoons cooking oil
    1 cup buttermilk

    Mix together dry ingredients with liquids and bake at 400 degrees F in an iron skillet that you have put some cooking oil in and heated very hot in the oven. Bake until the center is cooked...don't have the actual time...but this is great...a little different than the traditional restaurant variety.
