Categories: Breads

Submitted by: Karen Mitchell-Wilcher

This cornbread is made right in a cast iron skillet, the same way it was made over 100 years ago!


  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 c. yellow corn meal
  • 2 tsp. Rumford Baking Powder
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. skim milk
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 egg beaten


Spray 10-inch cast iron skillet with vegetable cooking spray. Place skillet in a 425 degrees F. oven for 4 minutes or until hot. Combine cornmeal, Rumford Baking Powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture. Combine milk, oil and eggs; stir well. Add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. Spoon batter into preheated skillet.

Bake at 425 degrees F. for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Makes 8 servings. Recipe by Karen Mitchell-Wilcher.
