How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Put butter in a 10-in. cast-iron frying pan and set in oven. (It's okay if the butter browns a bit; it will only add flavor.)

Step 2

Whisk dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix eggs, sugar, and buttermilk in another bowl.

Step 3

Remove pan from oven and brush butter over the inside.

Step 4

Whisk wet into dry ingredients, pour in melted butter from pan, and whisk until batter is smooth.

Step 5

Pour batter into hot pan and bake until lightly browned and springy to the touch, 25 to 30 minutes.

Step 6

*Find red cornmeal on; blue and yellow cornmeals are widely available.
