Country Corncakes

1 cup white corn meal
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons melted lard*

Sift the meal, flour, and salt together into a mixing bowl. Mix the baking soda and buttermilk; add to meal mixture and stir until combined. Add beaten egg and melted lard; mix well. Fry on a very hot, lightly greased skillet, flipping each cake once. Makes about a dozen cakes.

I don't like lard, but that is what the recipe says. Feel free to substitute melted butter or margarine.

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
