Skillet Cornbread

    • 40 minutes
    • Serves 8
    • Easy


    Corn is one of my favorite vegetables. It’s sweet, crunchy and is available all year round! Now, when you combine cornbread and corn kernels, magic happens. This easy 30-minute, skillet baked version is great so I had to share! Using fresh corn is a game changer but you can also use canned.

    I constantly find myself using my cast iron skillet and absolutely love it for cornbread. If you do not have an oven safe skillet, simple add the batter to an oiled (or buttered) baking dish.



    Get Your Oven Hot

    Preheat your oven to 400F and prep all of your ingredients.


    Mix Dry Ingredients

    Get a large mixing bowl. Add the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix with a whisk.


    Mix Dry Ingredients

    To another bowl, add the milk, oil, egg and honey and mix with a whisk. I love using my pyrex glass measuring cup for this.


    Add Wet to Dry

    Add the wet mix to the dry and combine with the whisk.


    Add the Fun Stuff

    Add the grated cheese, corn, cilantro and mix. If you are using canned corn kernels, be sure to drain and rise before adding to the batter.



    Add the batter to your cast iron skillet or grated baking dish and bake at 400F for 20 minutes. If you are using a baking dish, it maybe take 5-10 minutes longer. To check if the cornbread is done, insert a wooden skewer into the middle of the cornbread. Is the skewer comes out clean, the cornbread is done!
