  1. Mix all dry ingredients together.

  2. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl, add dry ingredients.

  3. Lightly grease a 10- or 12-inch cast iron skillet. Pour in batter. (I preheat the skillet while I’m making the batter.).

  4. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes, rotating pan halfway through.

Also, no buttermilk in the house, so I used the usual substitution of 1 T. lemon and enough regular milk to make up one cup. The rest was per recipe.

    I always used white vinegar to a cup of milk to make buttermilk…same difference I guess. These do sound good. I usually do not buy creamed corn, do you think I could use whole kernal if I creamed it myself using my emulsifier blender?
