Sweet Cornbread Recipe
When making chili, the sidekick is usually cornbread, right? This is a delicious sweet cornbread recipe that is perfect. We love that it is a cast iron corn bread, as it allows us to use our favorite cast iron pan.
Here’s what you need to do, to make a delicious cornbread.
How Do You Make Sweet Cornbread?
1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick melted butter
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
1 cup corn (can use cream of corn if desired add additional cooking time)
Preheat your oven to 400F.
In a bowl, add the flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder. Mix together. Add the melted butter and mix.
Add the egg and milk and incorporate. Then add the corn in last and stir.
Butter up your #9 cast iron zealously. Be generous and make a mess. This is how you get a crispy crust on the outside.
Pour the mix into the cast iron pan and bake for 25 minutes, or until the toothpick comes out clean.
IF you put in creamed corn, you may need around 15 minutes additional cooking time.
Serve and enjoy.
- The butter cast iron pan helps keep the corn bread from sticking.
- The butter cast iron pan also makes a crispy crust (yum!)
- Once the cornbread is cooled/served, remove from the cast iron and clean the pan.
- Using creamed corn, will increase your baking time, up to around 15 minutes.
