This cornbread is delicious! I cooked mine in my 10-inch cast iron skillet. I heated the skillet with the oven and melted a half-stick of butter in the skillet just before I poured in the batter. This resulted in a nice, crispy outside to the cornbread.
My husband LOVES sweet potatoes, and he loved this bread. I will make it again, and it does go well with the slow cooker BBQ chicken and the pickled onions and peppers.
