Corn Bread in Cast Iron Skillet

I’m always looking for excuses to use my cast iron skillet.  I love it.  One of the absolute best uses of it in my opinion, is corn bread.  The recipe is simple and the results are delicious.

You might notice in the above picture that I got so excited about eating it that I started to slice it before my sister could snap a picture.  She wasn’t super happy about that.

I really like cornbread.  And I really like cornbread in a cast iron skillet.

So follow the recipe, get out your cast iron skillet, light your grill and 25 minutes later you’ll be enjoying corn bread the way it was meant to be made.
