Stone ground white cornmeal + whole wheat flour + farina (Cream of Wheat) Stone ground white cornmeal + whole wheat flour + farina (Cream of Wheat)
Number of Servings: 8


    1.5 cups low-fat buttermilk
    2 eggs
    .25 cup oil (I use olive oil)

    1 cup stone-ground cornmeal (I prefer white)
    .5 cup farina (aka Cream of Wheat)
    .5 cup whole wheat flour
    3/4 tsp salt * (optional)
    1 tsp. baking powder

    enough spray oil to lightly coat skillet


I break up a wedge in a bowl and pour on a cup of pinto beans with a little pot liquor. Fat free Greek yogurt is good on this too. You can add cheese, chopped chilies, nibblets corn... whatever to this bread - just don't forget to add the calories too!


Spray 8" cast iron skillet with oil & place in oven while it is preheating. (Preheat oven to 400 degrees, middle rack)

whisk eggs til lightly scrambled, whisk in oil til thick, whisk in buttermilk.

Put a sifter on a small plate and put all dry ingredients into the sifter. After all wet ingredients are whisked together, sift the dry ones into the same bowl. Stir until just barely mixed. Remove hot skillet from oven and pour/scrape in batter. Cook 30-35 min. Test for doneness (insert toothpick or knife into center - if it comes out clean the cornbread is done.)

Serving Size: one wedge = 1/8 of 8" cast iron skillet

Number of Servings: 8
