Simple Skillet Cornbread

Simple Skillet Cornbread created by Caroline Cooks

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.

    First of all,I'm pleased to be the first one to rate this recipe. I made this on 6/17/07 to go with Recipe#47924.I followed all the steps,except I added about 1 1/2 tablespoons more of sugar.( I like my cornbread on the sweet side)My SO and I both enjoyed the very crispy crust that this had,although I did have to bake the cornbread for about a total of 30 minutes.Next time I make this,(and it will be made again :))I'll make cornbread muffins since there are only two of us.And then I'll freeze the rest for later meals.Thanks so much for posting. "Keep Smiling :)"
