Ingredients

1 cup yellow cornmeal

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup milk

1 whole egg

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons shortening

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Stir together.
  3. Measure the buttermilk and milk into a measuring cup and add the egg. Stir together with a fork. Add the baking soda and stir.
  4. Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir with a fork until combined.
  5. In a small bowl, melt 1/4 cup shortening in the microwave. Slowly add the melted shortening to the batter, stirring until just combined.
  6. In a cast-iron skillet, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons shortening over medium heat. Pour the batter into the hot skillet. (The batter should sizzle.) Spread to even out the surface. Cook on the stovetop for 1 minute, and then transfer to the oven and bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. The edges should be crispy!
