Fun to make as an experiment, but I probably won't make it again. BTW... I used bacon fat instead of lard. I also let the mixture set for 30 minutes before baking so the cornmeal wouldn't be gritty.

You can use shortening, butter or even bacon fat. I think my grandmother also added a bit of sugar.

Lard is fat. You can replace it with butter or oil, or another kind of heavy fat.

I had Corn Pone for the first time yesterday; it was an Amish recipe and it was delicious. It was sweeter then I thought it would be. I have not tried making yours but I do have a question. Why do you use lard and is there something I can use instead of lard?
