Servings: 6 servings
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 Tbsp salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 3 Tbsp honey
- 2 Tbsp butter melted
- 2 Tbsp bacon grease fresh, or if using saved grease, melt it
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Dab a paper towel in bacon grease and grease an 8x8" baking pan (or spray with cooking spray), and set pan aside.
To a mixing bowl, add dry ingredients (flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt), and whisk until combined.
In another large mixing bowl, add melted butter, melted bacon grease, honey and eggs. Whisk to combine.
Whisk in the buttermilk.
Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet mixture, and use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to stir until just combined.
Pour batter into prepared baking pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
