To understand the full story, you need to click here for my brother Robert's quest to find this recipe.  Today, while digging in my grandmother's handwritten recipe book for a Thanksgiving recipe, I found it! 
 
 
Crisp Corn Cakes 
 
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup flour (I remember going to the Jiffy specifically for self rising flour so crossing out the soda and salt)
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups sour milk (buttermilk)
1 egg
 
Cook in bacon grease...   
 
We grew up with the "Big Breakfast" which typically was bacon, eggs, corn cakes, toast, half a grapefruit, cantaloupe and broiled tomatoes with parmesan.  It was a production!
