Classic Southern Cornbread

From Statesboro Market2Go

<p>Classic Southern Cornbread is best made with a cast iron skillet. Let the skillet warm up in the oven and melt some butter in it so that a nice crust will form. Some versions of this recipe use bacon drippings instead of or in addition to the butter. Adjust the amount of buttermilk to make a thick batter.<br /> You can also use self-rising cornmeal and omit the baking powder and soda.</p>
