Granny's cornbread

Yield: 1 Skillet

Beat eggs together until light. Add milk, shortening and salt.

Add meal, being careful in putting in, as meal varies and the batter should be a medium batter. Beat smooth. Grease and heat 8-inch skillet until grease (I use bacon grease) is smoking. I use no shortening, only bacon grease. Sift in the baking powder and dissolve the soda in a spoonful of cold water. Add to mixture, stir well and pour into smoking skillet. Bake in a good hot oven until brown and crusty, about 15 to 20 minutes.
