  1. In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda.
  2. In another bowl, combine buttermilk, egg mix, and vegetable oil. Beat until well blended.
  3. Add buttermilk mixture all at once to dry ingredients. Stir until well mixed.
  4. Turn mixture onto a lightly floured board and knead for about 2 minutes, until the mixture has come together completely.
  5. Roll out to a thickness of 1/4 inch and cut with a 3/4-inch-round biscuit or cookie cutter. If you don't have a biscuit or cookie cutter, you can use an overturned glass to cut the dough.
  6. Heat an ungreased pan over medium. Cook about 5 minutes on each side or until it is a dark golden color.
