Fred, the problem with what I told you is: how much she used. I can't remember and she's long passed on along with my Momma and Aunt. So I did a little research for you and came up with an average recipe:
1 1/2 cups self rising cornmeal mix, I suggest Martha White's if you can get it
1/2 cup flour
1 cup buttermilk or sweet milk if that's what you have, but Grammie always used buttermilk
Sugar, salt, pepper to taste
3 tablespoons bacon grease
Mix meal, flour, pepper, salt and sugar. Add milk to dry ingredients with egg and bacon grease. Stir well. Stir in cracklings, if desired. If mixture is too thick, add more milk. Batter should be a little thin. Bake in bacon greased pan (preferably a black iron skillet) at 425º. The sugar and bacon grease makes it brown and crunchy.
NOTE: The amount of bacon grease is the same if you use a ready made mix (blech) or if you make it from scratch. The recipe above is put together from a few sources and is the closest sounding to what my Grammie made.
