5 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups sour cream 12 ounces
5 tablespoons sugar
12 ounces beer
1 tablespoon margarine
1/2 teaspoon mixed herbs optional
If using self-rising flour, omit the baking powder and salt. Use a combination of herbs and spices as you wish. Try some dried basil, oregano, sage and rosemary.
Combine the sifted flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl; blend well. Pour in the sour cream and beer and mix thoroughly but do not beat mixture. Grease a 2-1/2 quart baking dish or similar sized pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour mixture into pan and bake for 40-45 minutes.
Remove and brush top with 1 tablespoon margarine. Return to oven and bake 15 minutes longer, or until browned and sounds "hollow" when tapped.
This does not keep as well as regular biscuits or bread, so eat right away. Leftovers do make good toast.
TIPS: Make sure you use a cash iron skillet for this dish or any cornbread dish. To make it the very best, pore enough veg. oil to coat the bottom of the skillet.....preheat the skillet on top of the stove or in the oven.
Caution: keep an eye on it! Don't set the house on fire!!
Once preheated, pore the batter in. You will hear it sizzle.
This is what gives your cornbread a crispy crust.
Then bake in a preheated oven at 350-degrees for 30 - 35 minutes.
