How to Make Hubby's Southern Cornbread


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degree F.

    Place butter and oil in iron skillet. Place skillet in the oven for roughly 10 - 15 minutes till butter is melted and pan is good and hot. Sprinkle pan with cornmeal after about 5 minutes ( once butter is melted ) Being careful not to burn yourself. Cornmeal is optional ( I like it as it gives it a nice crunch ).

    If you don't have an iron skillet; grease an 8 inch baking pan, and bake till golden.
  2. Combine all ingredients and mix well.

    Pour batter into heated skillet. Should sizzle as it hits the pan.

    Bake between 34 - 40 minutes, or until golden.

    Enjoy with a big slather of butter.
  3. This is not a real thick cornbread. It's the thickness my husband prefers.
