Foam-this last weekend I was going thru some of the few recipes that my Dad had-Came across this recipe for Lacey Cornbread-I didn't recognise the handwritting (it wasn't Dad's or Mom's so I'm guessing that it may have been my Grandma's (Dad's Mom) recipe-

Lacey Cornbread
Yield: 12 pieces

Use a small flatware spoon , not a measuring spoon. Tap down the center of each piece with edge of spoon as soon as it’s dropped into the hot grease to make the cornbread as flat as possible. It cooks quickly, only a couple of minutes on each side.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup plain cornmeal, not self-rising
1/2 cup hot tap water
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
cooking oil

Directions:
• Mix cornmeal, water and salt. Set aside.
• Heat 1/2 inch cooking oil in cast iron skillet.
• Drop teaspoonful into hot grease, tapping down the center of each with spoon as soon as it hits the skillet. Turn when edges are browned and cook remaining side until browned.
• Remove from hot grease when browned. Drain on paper towel. Sprinkle with additional kosher salt while still hot.

Hey Foam, now that I've had a chance to think this over, I remember Grandma making these when she was living with us after having a stroke. I must have been about 9 or 10.

Hope that recipe is similar to what you're looking for.

Made a batch of CB again this week to go with some Sopa de polla we made. So good! Still need to try the hot water version Kevin. Sounds like a perfect thing to cook in the Discada!

That is a good cornbread recipe I just do not use sugar in cornbread...It looks great and the only way to make cornbread is in a cast iron skillet...

Thanks Roller. Just made a batch last weekend for our mothers day gathering. Should've made two, there weren't any leftovers!
