Have I mentioned.... much we enjoy cornbread?:-)  

Of course, our favorite is the all cornmeal version, baked in the iron skillet.  However, we also have enjoyed this one.

Oops!  Stuck just a teeny-tiny bit as it was being flipped.  Didn't ruin the flavor at all!

I am not sure where I found this recipe.  Perhaps it is from a Southern Living Cooking for Two from years ago.  Vintage now, I'm sure.



  1. Nellie, This is how I remember my mother making cornbread. She would pour the mixture into her big iron skillet and place over a low flame. When it looked like it was time to flip it. she would lift one side and slide a plate under it , pulling the skillet away as the plate took the cornbread and then put the skillet over the plate and flip the whole thing, taking the plate away after it flipped. We had years of her cornbread made that way. I always baked mine. LOL. My mother only knew the way of the hills in which she was raised. Never owned a cookbook Nellie. So you know everything she make from memory. I think your cornbread looks very tasty. I think my sister has mommy old skillet. I do not even own one...that's kind of sad. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  2. Can't beat that for speed...I love cornbread but sadly I don't have an iron skillet. I'll have to make mine in the oven like I usually do. Nice little portions for two.

  3. I have always loved cornbread and used to make it often. Sadly, it is not part of the food plan I am on right now. You can have my share though!!! xo Diana

  4. Oh, MY!!! I have some butter softening in my kitchen, and now I'm in the mood for cornbread! I hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday, Sister! Love you!

  5. The only way in the world to cook cornbread is in a skillet.
    I bet it was super yummy.

  6. I've cooked it in a cast iron skillet in the oven, but never on the stove. I'm trying to picture me wrestling that skillet and flipping that cornbread. I have made cornbread patties, but it's been a long time.
