1tablespoonbutter or bacon fatfor skillet
1 ½cupsall-purpose flour
1cuppure yellow corn mealnot the mix
1/2cupsugar *optional if making sweet cornbreadl*
Add butter to 9 inch cast iron skillet and place into the oven.
Preheat the oven to 375 F.
In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients
Make a well in the center of the bowl.
Pour in the wet ingredients
Stir just until combined.
When oven is preheated, remove skillet (be careful it will be VERY hot).
Pour batter into skillet.
Use spatula to smooth the cornbread and shake the skillet to even out the batter.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until lightly golden around the edges.
TIPS Omit or increase the sugar if desired Be careful not to overbake Cornbread is done when golden and the sides begin to pull away from the skillet. Do not overmix. Batter should be slightly lumpy. Making cornbread is easy, but it's one of those things that may take a lil practice if you are bread-challenged (like me)
