Pioneer Woman's Cornbread

UMM UMM GOOD!  Chicken Legs made cornbread to go with our new favorite Deen Bros Chili.  At our house, you can't have chili without cornbread.  That would be like peanut butter without jelly or Bert without Ernie - it just isn't right!  We decided to try the Pioneer Woman's cornbread recipe from my new cookbook.  It is very similar to our usual recipe so we knew it would be good.  Some people like a cakey, sweet cornbread - this is not it.  This cornbread is not sweet at all.  It has more of a grainy texture with a wonderful crispy crust from pouring the batter in the hot cast iron skillet.  We thought it was great.  It was best with lots of butter slathered all over it!

  1. Looks fabulous. I've got to get out my cast iron skillet one of these days and make cornbread. I've never done that.

  3. Oh, yum! Why buy it in the box? Me, being a northerner, adds sugar to her cornbread. I know... it makes a southerner faint.
    thanks for submitting this for next week's roundup!

    1. I'm a southerner, born and raised, and I've always put sugar in my cornbread. My southern, born and raised, Mamma and Ma Maw did too.
