1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees, and grease an 8 inch square pan.
Melt butter in large pot and then remove from heat and stir in sugar. Quickly add eggs and beat until well blended. Combine buttermilk with baking soda and stir into mixture in pan. Stir in cornmeal, flour, and salt until well blended and few lumps remain. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
* Don't have buttermilk? That's ok - make your own! For every one cup of buttermilk you need add 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice to the milk. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes before using.
*I don't use buttermilk super often when I cook so I buy dry buttermilk powder and keep it in the fridge that way when a recipe calls for it I have it on hand, and I don't have to send husband to the store.
