Moist from scratch homemade cornbread recipe made in the cast iron skillet.


  • 1 Cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 Cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 Cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 Cup all purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F and lightly grease a 9 inch cast iron round skillet.
  2. Whisk together the egg and milk.  Slowly whisk in the melted butter.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until just combined.  The batter will be lumpy.
  4. Add to your cast iron skillet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


If you don’t have a cast iron skillet this recipe can be made in an 8×8 square pan or 9 inch cake pan.  You can also double the recipe and make in an 9×13 pan.  Make sure to adjust your baking time.
