This corn bread skillet incorporates fresh corn kernels, as well as corn meal for an easy, go-to side dish. Because corn loves cornbread and so do we.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F. Place butter in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, and heat in oven until butter has melted and skillet is hot, about 5 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, whisk together cornmeal and flour in a large bowl. Whisk together buttermilk, corn kernels, and eggs in a medium bowl. Stir buttermilk mixture into cornmeal mixture. Add melted butter from skillet to cornmeal mixture, and stir just until blended. Pour into hot skillet.

Step 3

Bake until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven, and immediately turn out onto a platter.

I thought this was a wonderful recipe, the hit of my dinner.  Fresh corn was a super touch!  

No flavor

I was excited to see this recipe in my Southern Living magazine. It seemed simple and I was looking forward to trying a good cornbread recipe. I followed this recipe exactly and the bread had no flavor at all. Very disappointing.
