Skillet Corn Bread

My family has a cookbook, and in it there are about five different ways to make cornbread. I great up in the south, so that only makes sense. I’ve been thinking about cornbread a lot recently. Summer time just seems like a good time to have it. But really though, it works all year long … good with some summer grilled steak and veggies, works with fall butternut squash soup, great with winter chili … such a versatile food. But back to the point: Last week when I had cornbread on my mind, I went to my family cookbook to pick one to make. If I had been alone, I would have picked a spoon cornbread, but ‘wet’ breads don’t bode well for my husband eating it. If I had been making it for him alone, I probably would’ve just bought a box of Jiffy. This skillet corn bread seemed like a good compromise.

The recipe comes from my mom, and it’s super easy to make. It uses self rising cornmeal, so there are hardly any ingredients to mix. My mom recommends Hodgson Mill brand. My WalMart didn’t have that so I used Indian Head, and it turned out great. It was a hit for the whole family. The morning after I made it, my son and I heated up a piece, slathered some butter on top, and had it for our morning snack.
