Preheat 9x9x2 pan in a 450 degree oven. Sift meal, baking powder, salt and soda together. In a separate bowl mix together egg, milk, and fat. Add all wet ingredients to the dry ingredients at one time. Stir until just moistened. Pour batter into hot pan and bake for 15-20 minutes or until top is golden brown.This bread tastes very much like Mrs. Allen's muffins she used to make.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Laland said when they were all living at home he can remember his Mama making cornbread at night for their supper. 2 pans in the oven and 2 skillets for the top of the stove. He liked the pones from the oven the best because they were so crispy and crunchy. He said there was always buttermilk to go along with it. Some of the best suppers he can remember!
