Basic Buttermilk Cornbread

1/2 cup butter
1 cup self-rising corn meal (not corn meal mix)
1/2 cup flour
1 egg, beaten
1 cup buttermilk

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt the butter in a small cast iron skillet (just place in oven). Stir together well the corn meal, flour, egg, and buttermilk. Then add the melted butter, leaving a little in the bottom and along the sides of the skillet. Stir together and pour into the heated skillet. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Serve immediately (but can be reheated later)(also freezes very well).

*Can be used for corn bread sticks of muffins as well.

*Also can be doubled for larger skillets.
