Skillet Cornbread

Skillet Cornbread created by Tim969

This is the only way I will make cornbread now. Hubby bought me a 12 "Lodge cast iron skillet and since I had always heard my grandma talk about how good cornbread was in a skillet I tried it. This is her recipe with a few tweaks of my own. Its great hot,right out of the oven, with butter and honey. I also serve it with stews and soups. Enjoy

ingredients

directions

  • Set your oven to 425°F and then add the tbsp of oil to your skillet. Place the skillet in the oven while it comes to temperature.
  • In the meantime, mix the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl beat the eggs and then add the milk and the melted butter.
  • Add this into the dry ingredients and mix until blended, if needed you could add a touch more milk, but batter should be thick.
  • Go back to your stove wearing your oven mitts and take out the skillet, careful its HOT, then swirl it around a little to coat the bottom of the entire pan with the oil. Place on top of your stove and quickly pour your mixture into the skillet, you will hear it sizzle a little. Place back into your oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until cornbread is nicely browned on top. You can do the cake test if you want with a toothpick also. Serve right away with butter and honey, or jam. FYI - I use a 12 inch skillet for this recipe.

    I added fresh minced jalapenos, corn off the cob and grated sharp cheddar cheese. I also used sour milk( milk with a tsp or so of white vinegar) It looks and smells heavenly !!

    I should've kept a closer eye on it because 20 minutes in the oven made this way too dry. I will stick with my other cornbread recipes from now on.

    Good recipe. Rises nice and holds together well. A couple of changes, I used Buttermilk along with regular milk for a lighter fluffier bread. 1-1/3 cups Buttermilk and 2/3 cups regular milk. Also used bacon grease in the pan instead of butter, but I think I either would be fine. Lastly, mix the milks and eggs together first and add them to the dry ingredients. Once they're thoroughly mixed, fold the melted butter in. Don't over mix, just enough to blend it well.
