The video demonstrating how to make this delicous cornbread is posted below beneath the recipe and is also available on youtube. Cornbread is a staple of any southern dinner table and I know you'll soon be making it a regular addition to your family's meals as well. Enjoy! Granny

Preheat oven to 500 degrees
3 cups White Lily cornmeal mix
1 egg
1/2 cup shortening (can use bacon grease as part of measurement, if desired)
1 cup buttermilk

Spray iron frying pan with pan spray. Place small amount of bacon grease or shortening in pan. Put pan on stove eye and turn on high while mixing ingredients.(Pan should be hot, nearly to smoking, when cornbread is poured in.If it starts to smoke before batter is ready for pouring, turn stove eye off). Mix ingredients, adding extra buttermilk if necessary to make a thin batter. Pour into very hot pan (will sear and make a crisp bottom crust), place in oven. Cook 15-20 minutes till brown on top. Pour out onto cake cooling rack to keep it crisp. Place rack over a bowl or pan for air circulation till cool. Place on plate, slice into 6-8 generous portions.

Let me know how your recipe turns out and how your family likes it.
