How To Make Cornbread

Print Friendly and PDF

Gather up 4 ingredients and come on into the kitchen and Mama will show you how to make cornbread that's moist and delicious.

The eggs are the key ingredient that will make your cornbread rise and be nice and fluffy. If you don't have a cast iron skillet, you can use a glass pie dish. Spray it with non-stick cooking spray and don't preheat it.

Here's what you'll need:

2 cups of self-rising cornmeal
1/3 cup of vegetable oil (or bacon grease if you have it)
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup of milk

Here's what you need to do:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Grease a 9-inch cast iron skillet with either shortening or bacon grease and place in the oven.

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended. Remove the skillet from the oven and pour the batter into your preheated 9-inch cast iron skillet (if you don't have one, you can use a glass pie pan but you don't need to preheat it).

Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

If you like your cornbread sweet, add 2/3 cup of white sugar to the batter.
