Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

1. Recipe can easily be doubled... bake in a 9x13" baking pan (may take a little longer to bake)
2. Recipe adapted from Blue Ribbon Beer Garden
