Skillet Corn Bread.

on October 4, 2013


I have had quite of few different recipes of corn bread but this one has to be my favorite.  Now this one to me is a true southern corn bread.  You will need a cast iron skillet.  I think a cast iron skillet is one pan everyone should have.  Because it’s so heavy it distributes heat evenly, not only that , you can cook just about anything you want in cast iron.


1 cups of yellow corn meal( you could substitute with white corn meal)

2 cups of all purpose flour

2 tablespoons of baking powder

1 teaspoon of kosher salt

1/4 of sugar( optional, if you like your corn bread sweet add a little more

1 tablespoon of baking soda

1 large eggs

1/4 of mayo

2 cups of buttermilk

2 cups of whole milk

5 tablespoons of Crisco shortening


preheat oven to 450 degrees

First heat up 3 tablespoons of shortening( set aside after it has melted, to cool some what).  In your first bowl put your corn meal, flour.baking powder, and salt whisk together.  In your second bowl put your 2 eggs(whisk), the add your sugar and whisk again until sugar is  is well blended, with the eggs.  Then add your baking soda, milk, and buttermilk.  Mix those together for a minute. Last pour your melted cooled shortening in, and mix together.  One very important tip is, you can mix each bowl separately as much as you want but once you put the dry ingredients into the wet, you do not want to over mix. This will insure that your corn bread will be light and tender. Now put your skillet on med high and get it hot.  Lastly you want to put the remaining two tablespoons of shortening into skillet to melt. That should happen quickly.   Turn down to med heat, pour your batter in and spread it out gently.  Your will see the shortening bubbling around the edges of the pan. Let that go for just about a minute, then put the pan right into the oven.  Cook for about 25-30 minutes, the top should be golden brown.  Take a tooth pick place it Imagein the center, if it comes out clean it is done.
