White Trash Cooking Cornbread

From the cookbook White Trash Cooking, this cornbread is dry and savory.

1 T bacon grease or vegetable oil
3/4 pint of buttermilk
1 t salt
3/4 t baking soda
1 egg
1 pint cornmeal (no flour added)
1 T melted butter or bacon grease

Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Add the fat to the skillet, then put the skillet into the pre-heating oven.

Pour buttermilk into a mixing bowl and stir in salt and soda until the soda is dissolved. Beat in the egg. Add in the cornmeal and mix until smooth, not too long. Finally, stir in the melted fat.

Carefully remove the skillet from the oven and add the batter. It will immediately begin to sizzle. Place the skillet into the oven and cook for twenty five minutes. Give the skillet a shake; if the middle is jiggly, let it cook another five minutes.
