Once Again My Grand-Mother Mrs "Lola Lee Walker Mercier" Was My Inspiration I Discovered It While She Sat It On The Right Side Of My Grand-Father "Luther Elze Mercier", At The Head Of His Table. She Always Sat It There, She Would Cut In Half And Leave One Side A Whole Half And The Other Side Slices But I Sure Do Remember It Just Like It Was Yesterday, Best Buttermilk Cornbread I've Ever Enjoyed~
*Preheat oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and sugar. Stir in the Bacon Drippings, Buttermilk and Eggs until just combined. Pour a thin layer of Bacon Drippings in the bottom of a cast iron skillet "And All Around The Edges". Heat over medium-high heat until the oil just starts to bubble. Pour the cornbread batter into the Warm bacon Drippings. Bake until the center is firm and lightly browned on top, about 20 minutes.
