Here is what my wife makes for cornbread. I have a picture of our favorite cornmeal. It is a mill about a hour away from me. They have a web site you can order from. This is not sweet cornbread.

1 cup stone-ground yellow cornmeal
1 cup bleached all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup buttermilk plus some more to make good batter
3 large eggs
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 handful of frozen corn
2 to 3 hot jalapenos or Serranos peppers chopped

Add enough buttermilk to make good batter.

Preheat oven and pan to 450 degrees. Heat cast iron pan dry.

Pull pan out and add 2 tablespoons oil, avocado oil if you have it. You need to spread the oil around the pan.Then add the batter and bake for around 20 minutes.

And that cast iron pan was my grandfathers that he used when I was little.

Barton Springs Mill has good stuff. Never gotten something less than stellar from them. I buy whole, unmilled Rouge de Bourdeaux wheat from them and mill it fresh for bread and its incredible. Their Bloody Butcher grits are also great.

My brother's lived in Dripping Springs for about 15 years. Beautiful area. There's two great BBQ smoker builders there. I didn't know there was a grain mill too!
