Make it: Skillet Cornbread

Skillet Cornbread

This old-fashioned recipe for skillet cornbread is simple, easy, and produces a delicious cornbread that has a perfectly buttery crust on the bottom.

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups cornmeal
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 ½ cup milk
  • 10-inch cast iron skillet


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place butter in the skillet, and place the skillet in the preheated oven, keeping it in there until the butter is melted.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, egg, and milk. Pour in melted butter, and stir until combined.
  4. Pour batter into skillet, and return skillet to oven. Bake for around 35 minutes, or until cornbread is fully cooked in the middle, and the top is golden in color.

  5. longislandhiker says:

    I agree, add sugar. Probably more like 1/2 cup. Plus baking powder (5 tsp?), some salt (1/2 tsp – 1 tsp), and it would be better. Very healthy as it is, but too bland. Could always add some green chilis or something else to spruce it up as well.
