Skillet Cornbread


This recipe so good. I never knew how good cornbread could be until I made it in my cast iron skillet. Delicious!

4 tablespoons oil or bacon grease
2 cups yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk

Pour oil in cast iron skillet and place in oven while preheating to 425 degrees. In medium bowl, sift together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add buttermilk. Let set for a few minutes while skillet is heating. Remove skillet from oven and pour mixture into the hot oil. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Especially good with Ham and Beans. Enjoy!
