Directions:
Heat oil in a cast iron skillet in a 400 oven. Mix dry ingredients and add egg and milk (start with 3/4 cup and add as much as more as you need to make a batter that is just liquid enough to "burp" when you stir it). Stir in hot oil and pour into hot skillet. Bake 20 - 25 minutes, until golden brown.

Personal Notes:
This is the first recipe I learned to make without a recipe. I remember Daddy bragging about my cornbread, but I think now that it was his way to get me into the kitchen to help Mother with the cooking. We had cornbread at almost every evening meal. That's truly a southern thing!
