How to Make Golden Sweet Cornbread
- In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir in the egg, buttermilk and vegetable oil until well combined. Pour batter into warm 9 inch cast iron skillet on low temp on stove top.
- Watch for bubbles on cornbread (as you would when making pancakes). Once bubbles begin to rise to the top, slip into pre-heated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
- Let set on counter for 5 minutes, and then flip skillet over onto plate. Allow cornbread to fall onto plate on it's own. Don't force.
