Southern Cornbread Recipe

The Best Cornbread Recipe
It is finally feeling like Fall here in The Ham – I hope it stays this way! We decided to cook chili and cornbread for dinner last night. This cornbread recipe is the recipe that my Mom uses. I’ve eaten this cornbread my whole life. It is simple and really good. My Mom uses this cornbread in her dressing (best ever) for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
How to Make Southern Cornbread From Scratch
This Southern Cornbread is super easy to make. Start by putting some oil in a small cast-iron skillet. Place the skillet in the oven and then preheat the oven. While the oven is preheating make the cornbread batter by combining self-rising cornmeal, flour, eggs, and buttermilk. When the oven has preheated, remove the skillet and pour the batter into the hot skillet. Place the skillet back in the oven and bake.
If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, you can make this Southern Cornbread in a square baking dish or in a 9-inch cake pan. Sometimes I make the cornbread in a cast-iron cornbread stick pan.
I used White Lily Buttermilk White Corn Meal Mix. If you can’t find White Lily, any self-rising cornmeal will work. Please note that this recipe does not use Jiffy Mix.
