"This corn bread is a little on the sweet side. It's made with white cornmeal, but yellow works too. I learned to make it from my other mom (MIL). It is baked in a cast-iron skillet. Can be used to make stuffing or put leftovers in a cup with milk and put it in the fridge overnight for a comforting breakfast."

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Pour vegetable oil into a 10-inch cast-iron skillet and swirl oil to coat bottom and sides of skillet. Place skillet into preheated oven until very hot, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove skillet from oven.
  3. Whisk cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Beat eggs in a separate bowl and stir buttermilk into eggs. Pour half (2 tablespoons) of vegetable oil from the hot skillet into buttermilk mixture, retaining remaining oil in skillet, and beat until oil is incorporated. Mix buttermilk mixture into dry ingredients to make a smooth batter. Pour batter into skillet.

So tasty! I made a half recipe in my 6 inch Pyrex dish, turned out crispy on the edges and very flavorful and moist. I did change the method a bit...I added the cornmeal to the wet ingredients f...

This was different than other cornbread I've made. The cornmeal, flour ratio especially. With that, it's much more "gritty" than the recipes with similar amounts. 'Not a bad thing necessarily...
