Cornbread is love and comfort and warmth all in one. The sweet, nutty flavor and heavenly smell just gives me chills. In a good way. And boy, is this some moist and fluffy cornbread…I think the cast-iron skillet had something to do with it. You really have to make this amazing down-home cornbread to understand.

When I was a kid, my Dad would make his skillet cornbread to go with Sunday dinner. He put lots of yummy ingredients in like bacon fat and buttermilk. While I still love that kind of cornbread, this is a lighter version that is just as good.

Ingredients to make Skillet Cornbread

  • Cornmeal
  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Baking Powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Milk
  • Oil
  • Eggs
  • Butter

Pro tips for making the best cornbread

  • Only mix the ingredients until blended. For the fluffiest cornbread, you don’t want to over work the gluten in the flour.
  • Mix up the batter by hand, rather than an electric mixer. This way you can leave a few lumps in the batter that will moisten during baking and give the desired appearance to your cornbread
  • For fluffy cornbread, let the batter rest for 10 – 15 minutes after mixing. This will allow air pockets to form.
  • Put the un-greased skillet in the oven to preheat while you’re mixing the batter. This will give it nice crispy edges when done.
