I got this recipe out of my old Betty Crocker's Cookbook.
Fluffy Spoon Bread
- 1 1/2 cups boiling water
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1 Tbs butter or margarine, softened
- 3 eggs, separated
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp soda
Heat oven to 375F. Grease 2-quart casserole. In large bowl, stir boiling water into cornmeal; to prevent lumping, continue stirring until mixture is cool. Blend in butter and egg yolks. Stir in buttermilk, salt, sugar, baking powder and soda.
Beat egg whites just until soft peaks form; fold into batter. Pour into casserole. Bake 45 to 50 minutes. Serve hot with butter.
YEAH, serve hot with butter! This stuff is heaven!
