Ingredients

How to make it

  • (Preheat oven to 425F.)
  • Place the butter into a 10-inch heavy bottom ovenproof frying pan or cast iron skillet and heat in the oven until butter is melted.
  • NOTE- Heating the butter in the skillet until it's hot and melted before adding the batter, guarantees a desirable CRISPNESS on the outer edges of the bread.
  • While the pan is heating and the butter is melting, prepare your cornbread batter.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, buttermilk and egg until well blended- wire whisk if possible.
  • Pour batter into the HOT and buttery skillet (batter will sizzle), return to the oven and bake for 20 - 25 minutes until bread is golden brown and a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center will come out clean.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for approximately 5 minutes.
  • Invert cornbread onto a large plate and cut into wedges.
  • Makes 6 - 8 cornbread wedges.

    What do you do with the 1/4 cup of vegetable oil? It is listed in ingredients but not instructions.

    Wonderful recipe, I have made this too many times to count!
    One thing I did want to add is that the ingredient list calls for 1/4 cup of vegetable oil, yet this is not included in the list of things added to the mixing bowl. Assuming this is just an oversight, I have continued to add the oil to the mix every time.
    The end result is a fantastic cornbread with a crisp, buttery flavored crust. Absolutely delicious!
