Buttermilk Johnny Cake

Believe it or not, food was actually pretty cheap during the Great Depression. The problem is, a lot of people didn't have the money to buy food, no matter what it cost. One staple item that was plentiful and cheap was corn meal. Since it often served as a main course, families had to find new and inventive ways of preparing corn meal. One favorite preparation was called Johnny Cake.

1 c. flour
1 c. cornmeal
2 eggs
1 c. buttermilk
1/3 c. sugar (if desired)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. oil
Pour into 8 inch baking pan. Bake 30-45 minutes.
