Ingredients

  • Vegetable shortening butter or cooking spray, for greasing the pan
  • 1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 3/4 cup creamed corn
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted

Instructions

  • Generously grease a 10-inch cast iron skillet with vegetable shortening. If you don't have vegetable shortening, you can substitute butter or cooking spray. Place a baking rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, creamed corn and melted butter.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir with a wooden spoon just until combined. Avoid overmixing.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared skillet.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until the top of the cornbread is browned and springs back when touched lightly in the center. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean or with only a few cooked crumbs clinging to it.
