Tennessee Cornbread

1-1/2 cups white self-rising cornmeal

1/2 cup self-rising flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 egg

2 tablespoons melted shortening or bacon fat

3/4 cup buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Grease an 8-inch iron skillet. Mix well all the ingredients together. Pour into the skillet. Bake for about 20 minutes or until brown on top.

Southern Boy's Ice Cream!
Guess what happened to this Southern Boy's Ice Cream after the photo was shot?
I offered to share some with Sir Winston, but he asked for a rain check.

If some of this bread is crumbled up and dropped into a glass of buttermilk, it is like eating good ice cream.

NOTE: The reason for the self-rising cornmeal and flour is because salt and soda are not required.


Use the same ingredients as in the cornbread and add 2 onions, chopped

Mix all ingredients together and drop from a spoon into a pan of hot fat; turn once and remove when they are brown. The hushpuppies will cook in about 5 minutes. Let them cool in a plate on paper towels. Dip your spoon into a nearby glass of cold water after you make a drop and the next drop will not stick to your spoon.
