And here’s the recipe:

1 cup of flour

1 cup of cornmeal

1 teaspoon of sugar

1/3 teaspoon of salt

1 tablespoon of baking powder

2 eggs

1 stick of melted butter

1 1/2 cups of buttermilk

1..Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix until smooth. Pour into a cast iron skillet and bake for 25 minutes or until it’s golden brown and set.
