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.

Directions

We made this recipe last night to go with some taco soup that I had made in the slow cooker. Normally I would use a Jiffy Cornbread recipe because I've been too scared to try making cornbread "from scratch." I followed the recipe with one small modification: yellow cornmeal. I did not have white cornmeal to use. I didn't have a lot of time to get this made because I was working with it last minute. The recipe was so easy to follow which is a huge factor for me. It had a reasonable amount of ingredients and doesn't require three hours of stirring, kneading and other various baking terms I didn't have time for. It made a HUGE skillet full. Very thick. So delicious and I don't even like cornbread! Hubby loved it and apparently so did the sugar ants. I am adding this to my "kid tested, mother approved" file.

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 first, then did the other steps; I find the texture in the finished product to be more acceptable to DBF. Cast iron would have made it better, but that's a lotta leftover cornbread :) thank you for sharing this awesome recipe from your other mom, Nandabear!
