if you'd like to try it, here's the recipe. Like I said, the basis is from Susanna Lein, but I've changed the process and proportions a little. Here's my version of
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a cast iron skillet, melt a stick of butter. Add 2 cups of cornmeal and toast, about 5-10 minutes. Set aside to let cool slightly.
Meanwhile, mix batter: 2 eggs, 1 cup buttermilk (I always use a combo of plain yogurt and either milk or water), 2 t. baking powder, 1 t. salt.
Add batter to cast iron and mix. Pop skillet in hot oven for 2o min. Enjoy while warm.
