North Carolina Corn Bread


  1. 2 Cups Ground White Cornmeal
  2. 1 Teaspoon Salt
  3. 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  4. 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  5. 2 Eggs
  6. 1 1/2 Cup Buttermilk or 1 1/2 Tbs White Vinegar or Lemon Juice + 1 1/2 Cup Milk, let stand for about 10 minutes

  1. Preheat oven to 450. Put butter in a 9” cast iron skillet and put the pan in the oven until very hot.

  2. Mix whole eggs and milk together.

  3. Mix cornmeal, salt, baking powder and baking soda together in a bowl.

  4. Add the eggs and buttermilk, stirring gently-just enough to blend.

  5. Remove the pan from the oven and carefully swirl (brush) to coat the whole surface.

  6. Pour the excess butter into the batter and mix lightly to blend.

  7. Then pour into the hot skillet. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until firm and golden brown.
