Best Skillet Cornbread Ever!

  Posted on   by   No comments

If you want to make the best cornbread ever, take this Texas recipe and make it happen.

img_7030My mom made this for me a few years ago.  It is a non-sweet cornbread (I suppose you could add sugar), but the best part is that it bakes in a cast iron skillet.  It looks spectacular!

She got it from a 1957 cookbook written by Helen Corbitt.  We have adapted it a little, but I love the quote from Mrs. Corbitt:

“A better than best cornbread comes from a Texas ranch, straight from the pretty wife of a West Texas lawyer who ranches on the side.  She makes it for the ranch hands.  I have adopted it for my own use, and yellow cornmeal sales have increased.”
