  • 2 lg eggs

  • Heat oven to 450 degrees.

  • Place the skillet or cornbread pan you prepared into the oven 7 to 8 minutes until hot (this helps with your crust).
  • Pour your prepared mixture in the the skillet or pan.

  • For a little extra richness, remove cornbread after it has started to rise and coat the top with butter, then place back in the oven to finish.

Notes

If you make this with regular corn meal (meaning not self-rising), add 2 tsp of baking powder and leave out the 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour

Thank you very much for posting this. My mother learned from my grandmother how to make buttermilk cornbread just like this, and I’ve been looking for a recipe since the 80s! My mom never measured or used a recipe, so I was afraid this treat was gone forever. Can’t wait to try it – it looks just like theirs! Thank you!!
