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.

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups milk

  • 1 cup cornmeal

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt

  • 2 eggs, beaten
