Homemade Skillet Cornbread is a favorite side dish in our household. I love that it is delicious and super simple to make. This skillet cornbread recipe only contains a few ingredients that you likely have on hand. Best of all, you don’t have to be an expert cook to make and enjoy this delicious side dish.

My family loves this deliciously warm treat. Whether it is served with our favorite soup or simply topped with a square of butter, this skillet cornbread recipe never disappoints.

Like most, our love of cornbread started when we were children. My husband often recalls going over to his grandmother’s house on a Sunday afternoon after church to be welcomed by the delicious aroma of baked goods filling the air. He’d bypass the cakes and pies to greet the warm black cast ironed skillet of southern cornbread. He tells me this recipe is comparable to his grandmother’s.

Continue to the end of this post for the recipe. I have included the option to print the recipe for your convenience.

The recipe is really as simple as mixing the ingredients, pouring the batter in a hot buttery cast-iron skillet, and allowing it to bake in the oven. That’s It!

Over time, I’ve experimented with this recipe to create some outrageously good alternative dishes like this Cheesy Pickled Jalapeno Cornbread that goes perfect with any bowl of chili.
