Grandpa Dixon's Johnny Cake
(a.k.a. The Mother of All Cornbreads' Cornbread)

2 c. all-purpose white flour
1 c. yellow corn meal
6 tsp baking powder
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp salt
1/3rd c. cooking oil
1/3rd c. sugar
1-1/2 c. buttermilk

Mix all dry ingredients together.  In a separate bowl, mix all liquid ingredients
together.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet and gently combine.  As with
pancakes, stop mixing when the ingredients are barely wetted.  Pour into a greased
baking pan and bake at 425 F for 20 to 25 minutes or until done.

NOTE: I do like this best when baked in cast iron ...there's something about
johnny cake that just screams "I should be in cast iron!!"
