Ingredients

1 teaspoon All-Vegetable Shortening

1 large egg

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

1 1/3 cups milk

1/4 cup Pure Vegetable Oil

2 cups Martha White® Self-Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix

2 cups Martha White® Self-Rising Enriched White Buttermilk Corn Meal Mix

Instructions

Heat oven to 450ºF. Spoon shortening into 8-inch ovenproof skillet or 8-inch square or round baking pan. Place in oven to heat for about 5 minutes.

Whisk egg in medium bowl. Stir in buttermilk, oil and corn meal mix until smooth. Batter should be creamy and pourable. If too thick, add 1 to 2 tablespoons additional buttermilk. Carefully tilt skillet to coat bottom with shortening. Pour batter into skillet.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Tip: SELF-RISING CORN MEAL VARIATION: Prepare as directed above but substitute self-rising corn meal for self-rising corn meal mix and increase buttermilk to 1 3/4 cups or milk to 1 1/2 cups
