Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • 2 cups self-rising yellow or white cornmeal
  • ¼ cup self-rising flour
  • 1 TBS white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1¾ cup of buttermilk
  • ⅓ cup of oil + ¼ cup of oil for pan
  • 12 inch cast iron skillet
  1. Preheat oven to 420 degrees with cast iron skillet inside.
  2. Mix first five ingredients with ⅓ cup of oil by hand until just incorporated.
  3. Remove skillet from oven and pour remaining ¼ cup of oil into the skillet. Immediately pour cornbread batter into the skillet (it'll sizzle a little bit) and return to the oven.
  4. Bake for about 20-25 minutes (do not over bake - your oven may vary)
  5. Remove skillet from oven and allow to rest on stovetop for a few minutes.
  6. Invert bread onto a plate and cover with foil - allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
