Grease one 8-inch square baking pan.

In large mixing bowl sift together flour, Buttermilk Blend, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt.

Add corn meal.

Cut in shortening with fork or pastry blender until mixture is fine textured.

Combine eggs and water and add to dry ingredients.

Stir just enough to moisten dry ingredients.
