Skillet Corn Bread is a staple in our household. I tend to use a square cast iron skillet, you can use any round cast iron skillet (at least 10″ diameter) for this easy recipe! You’ll need 1 cup All Purpose Flour, 3/4 cup Cornmeal, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 3/4 teaspoon iodized salt, 2 beaten eggs, 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup melted shortening (like Crisco).

Preheat Oven 400 F – once hot place skillet in the hot oven (empty) for 3 minutes. In a mixing bowl add flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and stir to mix. In another bowl add 2 eggs, milk, melted shortening whisk ingredients well and slowly add into dry ingredients (do not over-mix batter), once combined transfer to (greased) hot cast iron skillet and place in the middle rack of your oven. Bake 18-20 minutes (or until golden brown). Remove from oven, cut into your desired size, add some butter or honey or jam and enjoy!

Easy and Delicious!

  1. I used to make cornbread in my cast iron skillet. Right up to the day the skillet got to be too heavy for me to lift. Now I can’t swallow the cornbread any longer, but I can still dream about it. You just made me long for the old days Cuz, and dream a little dream of days gone by. Hugs. Angie
