Fluffy Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by MandAs

This is my best friend's cornbread recipe. A lot of corn bread gets hard by the second day. I love leftover cornbread for breakfast but it can be too crumbly. This one stayed fluffy through the next day, so it's now my standard recipe.

This didn't work for us! The melted shortening cooked the eggs and ruined the whole thing! This made nothing more than a mess in our kitchen!
