This corn bread recipe is soooo good! If you like moist, slightly sweet corn bread this recipe is definitely for you. I got this recipe from Food Network, it was listed under Paula Deen....duh of course it's good! Give this one a try, I know you won't regret it!

Cast Iron Skillet Corn Bread:
(Food Network, Paula Deen)

1 1/4 cups coarsely ground cornmeal
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup whole milk
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
8 tbs unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 425 degrees and place a 9-inch cast iron skillet inside to heat while you make the batter. In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Whisk in the milk, buttermilk, and eggs. Whisk in almost all of the melted butter, reserving about 1 tbs for the skillet later on. Carefully remove the hot skillet from the oven. Reduce oven temp. to 375 degrees. Coat the bottom and sides of hot skillet with the remaining butter. Pour the batter into the skillet and place it in the center of the oven. Bake until center is firm and a cake tester or toothpick comes out clean. About 20-25 minutes.

  1. I never do it, but it tastes great if you use bacon grease to grease the skillet. Yum!
