“My Virginia aunt's old family recipe, thus the name Dominion. It's similar to cornbread in taste, but is much softer and should be served with a spoon, rather than cut. This is a comfort food for me, bringing back memories of my childhood. Delicious served with seafood!”

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spray 9x9-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Place cornmeal in pot.
  4. Pour boiling water over cornmeal, stirring to moisten.
  5. Cook cornmeal over low heat for 5 minutes stirring frequently, to form a "mush".
  6. Add salt, baking powder, baking soda, eggs, and buttermilk.
  7. Stir to mix well.
  8. **When you add baking soda and baking powder, this mixture will foam up, so be sure to use a larger pot than you think you'll need.
  9. **Immediately pour batter into prepared 1-1/2 quart casserole casserole.
  10. Bake 50-60 minutes or until set in the middle and lightly browned on top.
