Before anyone points out that Southern cornbread does not contain sugar, let me point out that my family loves this cornbread! Both the Yankees and the Southerners want it for every get together. In fact, my Son-in-Law just requested the recipe so he can bake it for our Sunday get together tomorrow!! That is a Great Southern Son-in-Law!!!

  • 2Put the butter into the iron skillet, and place in oven to melt.

  • 4Sift the flour and cornmeal into a large bowl; add the sugar, baking soda and salt and blend together well.
  • 5Add the buttermilk mixture to your dry ingredients and stir until just blended. Do not overmix...a few lumps may remain.
  • 6Carefully take the hot skillet with the melted butter out of the oven and pour in your batter.
