Cracklin' Bread

2 cups. self -rising cornmeal
2 tbsp. flour
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups. buttermilk
4 tbsp. bacon drippings
1 cup cracklin's

  Preheat oven to 450 F. In a mixing bowl, mix cornmeal, flour, eggs, and buttermilk and beat by hand. Melt bacon drippings in a 9 inch. square pan, pour into cornmeal mixture, and beat well. Fold in cracklin's, pour mixture into pan, and bake for 30 minutes.

note: When buying cracklin's be sure and get them with skin trimmed off. This will keep cracklin's from being tough.
