    I only use self rising flour, cornbead mix, egg and buttermilk. Spray the pan with pam (I use olive oil). I use 1 cup cornmeal mix to 3/4 cup SR flour. Is that what you mean? I never add oil/fat to my cornbread.

    I don't even put flour in my cornbread. If I want cake, I'll make cake. Since there is only 2 of us at home now. I use about a cup of self rising cornmeal (Martha White), I ususlly don't even measure. I add 1 small egg or just the egg white if they are large eggs and enought low fat buttermilk to mix it up good. Most of the time, I don't even bake it in the oven. I have a small skillet, about 6 inch round, and I get it hot on the top burner and add about a tablespoon of canola oil and pour in my mix. I then turn down the heat to about 2 1/2 and put a lid on the skillet. Let it cook about 8 or 10 minutes and it will usually be firm enough to flip over with a hamburger turner. Let it cook another 5 to 8 minutes or until browned. It can't get much better and doesn't heat up the kitchen with the oven.

    Ooooh, I love cornbread! If you want a real treat, add a dollop of sour cream, to your cornmeal (when mixing). Mmmmmmmmmmm!!!!

    Yes, I've done that when I ran out of buttermilk.

    I do the same, Sassy Granny, except I use a non-stick omelet pan. My great grandmother used this kind of pan(w/o the nonstick coating, of course.) Tastes good with no oil. Sometimes I use some nonfat dry milk in mine, instead of the buttermilk for even less fat.

    It is ironic that I just read this post. I bought a Paula Deen cast iron corn bread mold at a garage sale today and was looking for recipes for it. Do a Google search I found ones, but they were up to 300 calories each for cornbread sticks. This is way too much since we usually have corn bread with other items as part of a meal. Thanks for posting this site. When I get my pan seasoned and ready to go I think I will try this recipe first.
