HOT WATER CORNBREAD
1 cup yellow cornmeal, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 3/4 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon bacon drippings, 3/4 cup boiled water.
Get out a bowl, add the cornmeal, salt, and sugar. Add the water and bacon drippings bacon. Stir until everything is well blended. Get out a cast-iron skillet, add 1/2 – 3/4 inches of oil. Heat to 375 degrees. While the oil is heating, scoop out a heaping tablespoon of the cornmeal mixture, shape into a ball, then flatten out to a cake. Wet your hands. This step keeps the cornmeal mixture from sticking to your palms. Add the cakes to the skillet, fry until golden brown and crispy on both sides. Remove from the skillet, drain on a wire rack.
