Why is it that we never enjoy Thanksgiving food at any other time of the year? This cast iron cornbread is so easy to put together. You can stir everything in the skillet and not make a mess with any other kitchen items.

5 delicious vintage recipes skillet cornbread

It is a fun way to make cornbread and it looks so pretty when you serve it, too! My kiddos really like to help with the preparation of this cornbread. They think it is so much fun to stir all the ingredients into grandma’s old cast iron skillet and watch the bread take form.

This is so true! My husband and I ate the whole skillet bread in one sitting.  It is moist and totally delicious!



½ C Land O’ Lakes butter, melted

½ C Domino white sugar

2 eggs, room temp

1 C buttermilk

½ tsp baking soda

1 C Gold Medal all purpose flour

1 C cornmeal

½ tsp salt

3 tbsp Wesson vegetable oil

10 inch cast iron skillet



Preheat oven to 400

Mix the melted butter and sugar together. Add the egg and beat until blended. Add the buttermilk and baking soda and mix well, Add the cornmeal, flour and salt and mix until lumpy.

Add the vegetable oil to the cast iron skillet and put in the preheated oven for about 4 minutes. Remove and coat the pan (inner bottom and sides) using a paper towel. Pour any excess oil into the batter and mix well.

Add the batter into the cast iron skillet and bake on the middle rack for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.



Quick Tip: If you do have leftovers, store in an airtight container on your countertop.



A couple of weeks ago, my 15-year-old daughter begged me to make a pone of cornbread. I did and she took it in her lunch until it was gone. The kids asked her what it was! I was going to make pinto beans to go with it, but someone had my slow cooker and I couldn’t cook them while we were gone. I have finally gotten to the point where I can put a little of this and that together to make a good pone of cornbread. And I’m under 40!!!

Corn pone is simply corn bread that doesn’t have eggs and is usually shaped as an oval. There are actually special cast iron pans that have compartments that are shaped like ears of corn.

Lol all yall are asking what a pone is when it clearly has been explained what it is, pay attention people!!!!

The pone of bread is the whole cake not cut. You can also make biscuits in a pone or individual biscuits. Some people cut them. Others just break the pone and get how much they want. Breaking bread together.
