Chef's Skillet Kitchen Cornbread

  • Preheat the oven to 450 with the iron skillet in the oven. After the oven is preheated, leave the skillet in for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Whisk together dry ingredients: cornmeal, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl.
  • Add the large egg and buttermilk and whisk until smooth.
  • Remove the hot skillet from the oven and add the butter. Allow it to melt and brown. Swirl around the melted butter so that the edges and bottom are coated.
  • Pour in the cornbread batter and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly.
  • Turn out onto a cutting board and serve warm.
