This recipe is best done in iron skillets. These quantities make 1 large and 1 medium skillet. Use the oil in the ingredients to coat the inside of skillets and place in oven while it is preheating and you are mixing the other ingredients. Take hot oil straight frm the oven and add it to the mixture to stir in last before you pour mixture in the skillet. The skillets and oil should just be hot enough to sizzle. Very moist cornbread and excellent; if you want hotter add more hot pepper.
