I like my cornbread more than words can express.  The fact that I have a lot of cornbread recipes here on the blog probably gave that away?  

Normally I bake my bread in a baking dish or muffin pan, but I decided to try it in my cast iron skillet recently.  Let’s just say that it was a life changing decision, because this skillet cornbread recipe was the best ever!

If you’ve never baked in a cast iron skillet, you’re in for a treat.  The edges get amazingly crispy, while the interior stays tender and moist.

The cast iron skillet gets hotter and cooks more evenly, which produces those dramatically crispy edges.

Buttery Maple Skillet Cornbread

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup buttermilk (I used low fat)
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus 1 tablespoon for the pan
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen corn (thaw first if frozen)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Melt the 1 tablespoon of butter and swirl it so that it coats the bottom of the skillet. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, maple syrup, buttermilk, and cooled butter until combined. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir just until incorporated. Fold in the corn kernels. Pour into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes on the middle rack of the oven until the cornbread is golden brown and crispy and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve warm and enjoy!
