Mother gave me this recipe out of the blue about 2 weeks before she passed away.
1-1/2 c cornmeal
1/2 c all-purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda - ONLY if you're using buttermilk
1-1/2 c milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add 1 Tbsp of oil to iron skillet and place in oven while preparing mix.
In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients & pour into HOT cast iron skillet. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
Note: Can store dry ingredients & just add egg & milk when ready to bake.
