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 wonderfully 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!
This cornbread is so easy that I let Chicken Leg’s make it for us. Start with melting some shortening in a cast iron skillet. While the skillet is heating up, mix together cornmeal, flour, salt, buttermilk, eggs, milk, baking powder, and baking soda. Pour the batter into the hot skillet and bake. That is it!
We love this easy cornbread recipe. It goes great with soups and stews or grilled meats and veggies. I also like to use this in my Cornbread Dressing at the holidays. We make this all-year-round!
