Sweet Cornbread in a Cast Iron Skillet

Fluffy cornbread with crispy edges baking in a cast-iron skillet. This skillet cornbread recipe has a little bit of savory flavor and also a lot of sweetness from the honey.

Ingredients: butter sugar eggs whole milk cornmeal all purpose flour baking soda baking powder kosher salt honey neutral oil

The Steps:

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, add softened butter and sugar. Whisk together. Add eggs one at a time while mixing in between each addition. Add milk and mix.

Step 2: In a large bowl, add flour, cornmeal, baking soda, baking powder and kosher salt. Whisk together. Add the wet ingredients in and fold into the dry ingredients.

Step 3: Add honey and oil. Mix until well combined. Pour your cornbread batter into a 12 inch cast iron skillet at room temperature.

Step 4: Bake the cornbread for 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven carefully. Let the cornbread rest until warm and serve with butter or honey butter.

Hint: when removing the cast iron skillet from the oven, please be mindful of how hot your skillet will be. You will have a hot skillet for a little while after baking as well because cast iron holds heat very well so be careful for some time.
