Virginia Corn Pones

Yield about 1 1/2 dozen


  • 3 cups cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons shortening, melted
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons water

How to Make It

  1. Combine dry ingredients; mix well. Add shortening, buttermilk, and water; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.

  2. Shape into oblong patties, using 1/3 cup batter per patty. (Stir mixture frequently to prevent cornmeal from settling.) Place on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
