How To Make browned butter zucchini corny corn bread - cassies

  • 1
    Brown butter in saucepan, not burned - just browned Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Place oil in a 9 in iron skillet and place in preheated oven to heat up the oil - you want it good and hot, so when you spread in the cornbread it sizzles. A 9 inch cake pan could also be used to bake this bread.
  • 2
    In a bowl, whisk eggs, add buttermilk and mix. Next add the browned butter, corn, zucchini, onion and stir until blended.
  • 3
    In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, corn meal, sugar, seasonings, baking powder.
  • 4
    Whisk the dry ingredients with the wet. Mix just until blended.
  • 5
    Spread batter into hot skillet...oil should sizzle when the batter hits it.
  • 6
    Place pan back into oven and bake until a pick in center comes out clean and is golden brown. Edges should be crispy. About 20 - 25 minutes. As soon as it comes from the oven, I brush the top with butter - totally optional!
