Step by Step Method

Step 1

Heat the oven to 450 degrees. Place a 10-inch cast-iron skillet inside.

Step 2

Combine cornmeal, salt, baking soda and baking powder. In another bowl, combine 4 tablespoons of lard, egg and buttermilk.

Step 3

Combine wet and dry ingredients until smooth batter comes together. Carefully move hot skillet from oven to a burner over high heat.

Step 4

Add remaining tablespoon of lard to the pan and pour in the batter. Swirl the batter around the hot skillet to make sure it's evenly distributed.

Step 5

Return to oven for about 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cornbread comes out dry.

I don't think I've ever had cornbread made with lard before, but I really like it! Loved the taste and how it created a crispy crust. Normally I like sweet cornbread, but this was just lovely and easy to make. Should mention that I had white cornmeal on hand, so I used it instead of yellow. We'll definitely have it again!

This is how I like cornbread. No sugar and no flour. Went great with bowl of chili. I even used lard, which I had never used but I remember mom and grandma using it before Crisco got popular in the 50s
