Pone of cornbread

My parents were born & raised in the 1920s in north Georgia and they always used the term “a pone of cornbread”. It was made with cornmeal, a little flour, baking soda, salt, an egg, buttermilk and a little shortening or oil. I’ve eaten this my whole life.

Corn pone pre dates the civil war at least by several years. Frederic Law Olmstead mentions it in his series of writings published during the 1850s
