Place a 23cm cast iron frying pan into oven and preheat oven to 230 C / Gas 8.
Mix the polenta, baking powder, bacon fat, salt, eggs, buttermilk and cottage cheese together in a bowl. With an oven mitt, remove the hot frying pan from the oven and spray it with oil spray. Pour the corn bread batter into the hot frying pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until the top of the corn bread is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Check after 10 minutes. Serve sliced in wedges.
