Johnny's Corn bread for two

Janice Ross


My husband makes a delicious corn bread. He makes it in a little iron skillet and it is just right for the two of us. We never have any to throw away. It's very easy without a lot of fuss.

How to Make Johnny's Corn bread for two


  1. Mix the corn meal, milk, salt and pepper together. It should be a little runny. Also if you want to put a little flour in it do so but my husband never does. In a small iron skillet have some bacon grease in it. Roll the skillet around until the sides are coated with the grease or oil. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Pour batter into skillet. Spoon some of the grease across the top of the batter. Place in the oven. Brown and serve. It may not take 25 minutes it will depend on your oven. To be honest I had no idea that he baked his corn bread at 450 degrees. It always turns out perfect though and it's just enough for the two of us. I usually eat one piece and save the other one for the next day.
