Blue Cornbread

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PaulaG

Blue corn was a staple for the Pueblo Indians of Northern New Mexico. The blue-purple kernels produce a coarser consistency and sweeter, nuttier taste than yellow or white corn. This bread rises high and proud. This recipe was printed on the package of blue-corn meal I recently purchased.

I haven't tried it yet, but will make it soon. The recipe looks perfect, but I need to know how you got the browning on all sides when you make it in an iron skillet? I've seen pictures of iron pans with sections tho. Is that what one needs? Thank you!
