It, of course, wouldn't be "southern" cornbread without the bacon drippings. But the first thought I had was, "well, that's not a vegetarian cornbread recipe." We could have all kinds of diet controversies even without religion being involved. And speaking of diet...with all the cookbooks on the download list, I'm tempted to proof one even though I am trying to lose weight. However, the main reason I don't is because I already have two large non-fiction books that I am working on that are real time sinks (but interesting). I am proofing a book on the Vietnam War called "Patriots" which has short interviess with a variety of people from each side (575 pages). I am scanning a travel book from just before World War II about Yugoslavia called "Black Lamb and Grey Falcon" (1183 pages).
Yes, I am fishing for sympathy. Misha Cindy wrote:

Do not mean to offend anyone. I used soy milk; would that be better than cow's milk? Or is anything from pork family unclean? I used to babysit for a Hassidic Jewish family, but that was almost 30 years ago. We used paper plates and food set out if I had to feed the kids while mom and dad were gone.

This sounds scrumptious, but I must warn you, Valerie, Orthodox Jews are unlikely to eat this unless they don't mind cheating (smile). I wouldn't mind eating this with butter and honey. Yum.

Itshould be in glass, and not too large if you do not have somethingsimilar. Combine 1 cup white self rising cornmeal and onelarge egg until lumpy. A minute or so after the oven has reached its desired temp (so the grease will be hot enough for the next step), add 1/3 cup milk at a time, stirring the batter well between each addition. Once the batter is well mixed, remove skillet from oven and pour most of the grease into the batter, leaving enough to lubricate the pan. You know the grease was hot enough if it sizzles when added to the batter and again when you pour the mixture into the pan. (This sometimes takes a few batches to gauge while learning the technique.) Stir quickly into the mix the batter until well mixed (but trying not to allow the pan to cool much) and then pour in the hot greased cast iron skillet.Bake at 400° for about 18 minutes, until edges pull away.I place a dinner plate over the skillet and turn upside down immediately after taking out of oven. If it sticks, your pan needs more seasoning.Doug likes his middle soft, so we only cook about 16minutes, his mom likes hers dryer,so she cooks up to 20 min. Without sight, I would guide cook times by desired result and play in subsequentpreparations. We butter (or smart spread) our tops and bottoms sothey reheat better, his mom slices hers in the middle and adds a pat of whatever there. personal preferences.Enjoy!
