Skillet Corn Bread

Skillet Corn Bread 057ab

I have to say finding a good cornbread recipe is harder than it sounds. I finally decided to make this recipe I found here. I read the comments on recipes because usually it will include some really important tips and improvements. I read them and decide on how I want to make mine. I think it turned out great. Nice and crusty on the sides and bottom. Soft, sweet and moist on the inside. You can vary your skillet size to make them thicker if you like. I used my Lodge 12 inch seasoned cast iron skillet.

You’ll need:
3/4 cup cornmeal
1 1/4 cups milk
1 cup flour
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup oil
2 tablespoons butter
Combine cornmeal and milk in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes.
