1-teaspoon baking powder
1-teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup bacon grease
1 old fashioned skillet that is oven proof.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Mix first 5 ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix with a whisk.
Put bacon grease in the 10" skillet over medium high heat, and watch it carefully (don't want a grease fire!) when it gets good and hot, pour into the batter, stirring as you pour. Then pour the mixture back into the skillet.
Place the skillet on the middle rack of your oven, and bake until springy and pulling away from the sides.
Remove from oven and tip onto serving plate and serve with plenty of butter!
You can make different versions of this recipe. You can replace the bacon grease with margarine or other cooking oils, you can also cook the bread right on the stovetop for 15-20 minutes on med heat. . but watch it carefully.
This cornbread is great for stews, chili, anything. . .
