Never Fail Buttermilk Cornbread
Two very important steps: It must be made in a cast iron skillet and skillet needs to be greased with bacon grease!
Oh, and whatever you do - don't make this with sweet milk! Buttermilk is the key!
How to Make Never Fail Buttermilk Cornbread
- Add beaten eggs and buttermilk & mix well. (I use a hand mixer).
- Place 10 inch iron skillet on range top with 2 T of bacon grease. Heat on medium.
- Place skillet into center rack of 400 degree oven and bake for 20 minutes. Insert toothpick in center to be sure it's done (dry).
- If cornbread doesn't release, tape around the edges and top of skillet. Be patient; it may not be cool enough. It will eventually fall onto plate.
