Guide on making cornbread:


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup fine-ground cornmeal
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup creamed corn
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp salted butter 
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs


Start by preheating to 375 °F and put the cast iron skillet in the oven.

Then in a small bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. Measure the buttermilk in a measuring cup and add the baking soda. After adding the baking soda, stir the mixture and set it aside.

Next, place the butter in the cast iron skillet that’s in the oven and allow it to melt.

Then in a mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. After that, add the frozen corn and mix gently.

Now, take the cast iron skillet out of the oven and rub it around to coat the bottom and sides of the skillet. Then pour the batter into the hot skillet and spread to even out the surface.  

Bake until the cornbread begins to brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, which should take approximately 30 minutes.

Cut the cornbread into wedges or squares and serve warm. Enjoy!
