2 cups corn meal
1 1/2 cup of 'buttermilk' *I used soymilk with half of a freshly squeezed lemon*
1/4 cup canola oil
1 Tbs. corn starch
A dash of sea salt
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. This works better with a cast iron skillet but a square baking pan will work as well. Mine is made of glass so it really does nicely. Toss some vegan butter or a little oil into the pan and put it in the oven while it is preheating. It is important that the pan be HOT when you add the batter!
Mix all of the ingredients together and then wait for the pan to get hot. Remove from the oven and immediately add the batter and listen to the lovely sizzling sounds.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove it from the oven and let it rest for about 20 minutes.
Serve with freshly boiled pintos with a slice of onion and a bowl of turnip greens on the side with a splash of pepper sauce! Gotta love that soul food!
