Inspired by Food and Wine Magazine, I've created a Simple Skillet Cornbread that is ready in about 30 minutes. It pairs perfectly as a side during summer cookouts and BBQs, with chili in the cooler months, and freezes well to enjoy later.
This skillet cornbread is super easy to make and would be a great compliment to so many dishes like chili, black eyed peas (or other beans), slow cooker pulled pork, tortilla soup, lentil soup (with sausage), split pea soup (with bacon), BBQ chicken or ribs, collard greens, or a big holiday dinner!
How do you love to eat your cornbread?

Love this recipe! I sometimes make it egg free (I use flax eggs) and dairy free (unsweetened almond milk, coconut oil for butter) and it still turns out great!
My first time making cornbread, and it turned out really well, thanks. How would you recommend reheating it?
Hi. I reheat it in the oven if I have time or in the microwave if I’m short on it. :)
Can you substitute eggs for something else or u have to have them?
Hello. We have not tried making this without eggs.
I made this cornbread for my husband.He is a picky when it comes to cornbread.He loved it! Told me to be sure to keep making it.
Excellent! My standard cornbread recipe uses half cornmeal and half flour, but I like this version using all cornmeal even better! It comes out of the cast iron skillet clean too! Using butter and adding the salt was too salty for our liking. I might add a tablespoon of honey next time and reduce the salt.
Outstanding! Moist and delicious! Best all cornmeal cornbread I have made.
Hi, I don’t have a cast iron skillet. Can I use stainless steel? Thank you!
Hi Lauren. You can. As long as it is a pan designed for oven use without any plastic parts.
Can I use a 10″ skillet? I don’t have a 9″ one. Thank you!
Sure, it will just have less depth.
Do you have to use a skillet? I dont have one. Thanks!
Hi. You can use a baking dish.

Great, super easy recipe! I added organic, frozen corn kernels to the batter just before pouring into the skillet and it made it amazing!
