  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place 2 tablespoon of butter into your 10 or 11 inch skillet. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt).
  4. In a small mixing bowl or a 2-cup measuring cup, whisk together eggs, oil and buttermilk.
  5. If your oven is ready, place the skillet inside for 2 minutes or until the butter is melted.
  6. Swirl the butter around the pan to coat it.
  7. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon. Do not overmix!
  8. Pour the batter into the skillet.
  9. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until the top is golden and the toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (my magic number was 18 minutes).
  10. Cool in pan before serving. Cut in wedges.
