Ingredients
  • 2 cups cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (12-ounce) can creamed corn
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lard
Directions

In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together, and then add the creamed corn, buttermilk, and eggs, and mix thoroughly.

Position a 10-inch or 12-inch Dutch oven over where the fire on your grill will be, and then arrange 15 charcoal briquettes around the bottom. Heat the Dutch oven over the fire.

Melt the lard in the Dutch oven, and then add the batter. The lard will rise up the edges and spill onto the top of the batter. Cover the Dutch oven and place 10 coals on the lid. Cook for about 30 minutes, or until the bread is brown and firm.

If using a cast iron skillet in the oven instead, preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place the skillet in the oven, melt the lard, and then add the batter. Do not cover. Bake for 25 to

30 minutes. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm.
