Fantabulous Yankee Cornbread

Fantabulous Yankee Cornbread created by Secret Agent

A little sweeter than Southern and really good! Make this in a 9 inch cast iron skillet for the best results and it may become your favorite corn bread too! DH loves this with Recipe #272121 and fried potatoes. UPDATE!!! YES! I did omit 4 teaspoons of baking powder in the recipe! Mea Culpa! It should be sifted along with the dry ingredients. I am so sorry and thank you for pointing it out to me. SA :( I have corrected the recipe.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Once the oven is hot start the recipe since you want a screaming hot oven.
  • Grease the bottom and sides of the cast iron skillet with the shortening. Use more than 1 tablespoon if you need to get more coverage.
  • By hand, sift all the dry ingredients together and stir them to make sure they are combined and make a well in the center.
  • Combine the eggs, milk and oil and mix well.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir only until they combine. I fold them together with a spatula.
  • Let batter rest for 5 minutes.
  • Gently pour into your cast iron skillet being careful not to deflate the batter.
  • Bake in the center of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes.

    the First thing i noticed about this recipe is that is does not include any baking soda or powder and so though the cornbread is very good, its dense and flat. Is this an error in the recipe?
