Simple Skillet Cornbread

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

Just a nice simple cornbread that gets a delicious crust from the skillet. You can add pickled jalapenos for a nice change, or even a little garlic, but sometimes simple is best.

This cornbread was dry, dry, dry. I suggest adding extra milk. After it was cooked, it practically exploded into dry crumbs. If I do make this again, I will be adding more liquid.
