  1. Put a large cast-iron skillet in the oven and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Whisk the cornmeal, oil, warm water and salt together in a large bowl until combined. The batter will be a little thicker than pancake batter, so it is easy to scoop with a spoon.  
  3. Remove the hot skillet from the oven and add the remaining tablespoon of oil, swirling to coat. Spoon the batter into the skillet, making 7 to 8 ovals (each about 1/3 cup). Flatten the tops a bit with the back of the spoon. It is fine if the ovals touch slightly.
  4. Bake until the ovals are golden on the bottom and firm on top, about 40 minutes. Serve with butter and molasses or honey if using.
