I like this because it's so quick and easy to prepare. It looks like a puffy pancake, but cuts easily and tastes great.

This is a great quick cornbread recipe! I doubled it and cooked it in a larger skillet. I also added some chopped green chile peppers to go with some hot/spicy beans. If I make it without the chiles, I think I'll need to add a little sugar.

This could not be easier! Perfect for two people. i love that it's cooked on the stove. Definitely like a cornbread pancake. i did use olive oil and decreased it to 1.5 t. in the batter and 1 in the pan. Thanks for such a great recipe!

Boca Pat, I like this too!!! I doubled the recipe because my cast iron skillet is 10". Also I subbed buttermilk...just because I had it. We prefer a sweeter cornbread so I added some honey. Good enough that I made it 2 days in a row! Thanks for sharing. It's a great method for quick cornbread....Janet
