This is a staple around my house and vey good to make a day ahead for Dressing to mix with bisquits. Not to mention over Beans and Ham after the holidays or any time...yummmy Can also use buttermilk. This make good Jalepeno Cornbread Also.
Pre-Heat Oven to 400. Heat a cast iron skillet in the oven till hot-hot with alittle oil. Do this after batter is ready to let it sit a bit.
Sift the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Form a well in the center and add beaten egg, milk and oil. Stir just to combine-there should be clumps of the flour in your batter like little BBs.When your pan is hot open oven and pour batter in skillet, it will sizzle and make a pretty bottom. Bake 20 or 30 min. to a golden brown. Also if you put a little cornmeal in your skillet and let brown a bit you will have a crunchy bottom for warm butter. yuumm.
