This traditional Cornbread Recipe (Easy), a delicious accompaniment for any soup or salad. Moist and fluffy cornbread can be made in a cast iron skillet or a cornpone pan.
Me too, and this Cornbread Recipe (Easy) is a dump-mix-and bake simple recipe. It is based on James Beard's recipe found in his American Cookery cookbook, which is a terrific basic cookbook. I love Cornbread with soup, stew, roast beef...anything. I like to make it in a cast-iron frying pan that has been seasoned well (so it doesn't stick). The crust gets a little crispy, which makes it taste sweeter. Do you have a cast iron pan? Or, better yet, a cornpone pan? I find them invaluable in my kitchen. The cornpone pan allows the cornbread to get nice and crispy on the outside and stay soft and delicious inside.
What You Need
For this recipe, you need a mixing bowl, measuring cups and spoons, a wire whisk or mixer, and a pan to bake your cornbread in. But what you really want is a cornpone pan, cast iron skillets, fun dishes and lovely glassware, am I right?
