Skillet Corn Bread
March 14, 2017

Perfect basic cornbread recipe that you can as a base recipe that is good as is, but if you like to "doctor up" recipes, this is the perfect base. If you want sweet corn bread just add sugar -- up to 1/4 cup. If you want buttermilk cornbread use buttermilk and substitute 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda for the baking powder. Add creamed corn if you want creamy corn cornbread. This is a GREAT base recipe to keep -- no need for 3 cornbread recipes. Just add want you want to this one. Tips: You can melt the butter in the skillet, then pour it into the batter. No need for another pan. There'll be a little butter left in the pan, so you won't need the oil. Do NOT overmix. Mix all the dry ingredients together separately then use a large spoon or spatula to fold the wet and dry together.
