Notes

My favorite way to bake this cornbread is in a 10″ cast iron skillet like this one. I highly recommend having cast iron skillets in your kitchen! However, as an alternative, you can use any type of square or round dish that is around the same size.

To grease my cast iron skillet before baking, I usually will put a little butter in the skillet and set the skillet in the oven as it come us to temperature. It does not take long for the butter to start to melt, so keep your eye on it. Once the butter turns soft and begin to melt, I pull the skillet out and swirl it so that the butter coats the entire skillet.
