A simple, slightly sweet corn bread made in the versatile cast-iron skillet. Tastes great and is a good base recipe to experiment with. Cast-iron skillets take a little bit of time to warm up. Pre-warming the skillet allows the corn bread to cook evenly.

Description says it's slightly sweet, and it's not at all. Bland.

The best ever... and easy... heat the oil and the skillet at the same time

I am not expert on cornbread, but I thought this was good. It doesn't crumble in your hand and it isn't sweet, both pluses to me. Thanks for sharing.
