Louise frazier's southern corn bread

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup Cornmeal -- stone ground
3 tablespoons Flour
2 tablespoons Sugar
3 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Baking soda
1 cup Buttermilk
2 \N Eggs -- well beaten
4 tablespoons Dripping

Preheat the oven to 350F. Combine the dry ingredients and stir in the wet. Pour the mixture into a lightly buttered 8" square pan and bake for 40 minutes, checking after 30. This is a dense, chewy cornbread and serves 6 to 8. Again, substitutions can be made: skim buttermilk, Egg Beaters, and butter substitutes for the dripping and to grease the pan. Do try to find stone ground cornmeal, though. It gives the cornbread a wonderful flavor and texture. The batter may also be fried in a large pan on to p of the stove, flipping it over so both sides are crunchy.
