1/2 cup flour
2/3 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
1/3 cup butter (2/3 of a stick)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Combine the dry ingredients. Mix in the milk. In the oven, melt the butter on a jellyroll pan or other shallow pan. Pour in the batter. It will be free-form. Don’t try to make it fill the pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Eat hot. You can bake this is a cast-iron pan or any other oven-safe pan. It will taste good, but it won’t have as much crispy buttery edge.
