Let’s just start this little shin-dig out right with what else but a recipe. And not just any recipe. The BEST CORNBREAD recipe, ever.
I know most people just want to eyeball it, but it really does help to have a recipe so that you don’t choke your family members with the crumbs! My recipe is NEVER dry, always moist and lovely!
Give it a try.
First off – you HAVE to have an iron skillet. PERIOD. Don’t even try to make cornbread until you have one! Seriously!
On to the recipe…
1 1/3 cups self-rising cornmeal
1/4 cup oil
1 cup buttermilk (rinse measuring cup with 3/4 cup water and add to mix)
3/4 cup self-rising flour
Heat oven to 425˚. Spray iron skillet with cooking spray and add about 1/4 cup oil to skillet. Allow to heat in oven.
While it heats mix all ingredients together and pour into hot skillet. Place back in oven and reduce heat to 400˚. Cook until golden brown!
Be sure to tell me if it’s NOT the best cornbread you’ve ever had!
