  Vegetable shortening 2 Tablespoon
  White cornmeal/Yellow cornmeal 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  All purpose flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Baking powder 1 Tablespoon
  Sugar 3 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Eggs 2
  Milk 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)

Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Spread the shortening over the bottom of a heavy cast-iron skillet and place in the oven.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
Add the eggs and milk, stirring quickly to form a stiff batter.
Do not overwork or the corn bread will be tough.
Pour the batter into the hot skillet.
Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 45 minutes.
Turn out onto a large work surface or cutting board.
Cut into wedges and serve warm.
