Pone Bread

My mom used to make sausage gravy and a bread that was put in the oven. We called it pone bread or leave it alone bread, but it was like a buttermilk biscuit, only it took up the whole pan. Do you have any idea?


Hey there David!



There are several types of pone bread including corn pone and sweet potato pone bread but since you are wanting to put gravy on it, I think this may be the recipe you are looking for:



PONE BREAD



4 cups self-rising flour

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1/3 cup vegetable oil (or melted & cooled shortening)

1 cup water

1 cup buttermilk


Sift together all of the dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and add all of the wet ingredients. Mix just until incorporated. Pour into a heated, greased cast iron skillet. If you don't have a cast iron skillet you can use a glass baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray (don't preheat it). Bake at 400 degrees until done.

I hope this is what you are looking for!

Mama
