Great to serve with black-eyed peas and hog jowl for good luck on New Year’s Day!
SOUTHERN BATTER BREAD
Scald 1 quart of milk in double boiler and stir in 1 quart of water-ground corn meal, a little at a time, while stirring constantly. Add 2 teaspoons salt and 2 beaten eggs, beat all thoroughly and turn into a greased saucepan. Continue beating to prevent lumps forming while batter cooks.
Heat 2 tablespoons butter or bacon grease in baking pan, turn pan to let fat cover bottom and sides. When batter is a thick mush, turn while sizzling hot into the baking pan, which should be equally hot, and bake 20 minutes in a hot oven. Batter bread not only goes well with fried or stewed chicken but is nearly as good with any meat with which a good gravy is served.
Note: Baking pan is often an iron skillet.
