Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup self-rising cornmeal mix
  • 23 cup water
  • 1 cup vegetable oil (for frying)

Directions

  1. Mix first two ingredients to make a batter --- add more or less water depending on how thick or thin you want your cornbread patties. The best way would be to mix in small amounts of water at a time to get the consistency you want.
  2. In a skillet or frying pan bring oil up to medium heat and test 1/2 teaspoon drop of batter, You do not want it to fry too fast. I normally cook mine on #6 and then furn down to #5 on my stove. Drop by tablespoons full and pat out with back of spoon to make a pattie. Turn over when bottom is light brown.
  3. Serve and enjoy this tasty bread!
