Grandma’s Corn Bread cooked in a skillet

My Grandma use to make the best corn bread ever! She had a very heavy cast iron skillet she would bake it in. The pan was so heavy I could hardly lift it for her. Her corn bread had corn kernels in it. It was the perfect side dish when she made her homemade Chili. I also enjoyed the cornbread toasted for breakfast in the morning. Sometimes she would slice the cornbread in pie shaped slices and spoon her chili on top of the cornbread then add shredded cheese! She was a wonderful cook and could make a meal with any ingredients she had in the house and made up her own recipes as she went along. She was a sweetheart and loved feeding anyone who entered her door. Huge heart and all about family and friends. Wonderful example for me. Miss you Grandma! Thanks for the memories

There are so many ways to make cornbread. Cast iron is a grand way to really bake a bread but you're right, it is crazy heavy.

@Ganma7 That cast iron will also make the carpal tunnel wake up in the wrists.

I also add whole kernels when i prepare the cornbread, I usually serve with a Jambalaya or a seafood gumbo.

Yes cast iron was a favorite choice of cookware. They do hold the heat very well. Thank you

Some people are very clever at making delicious meals from whatever is at hand. The skillets in our house-sit are incredibly heavy too.
