Winter is coming and I am already looking forward to big bowls of hearty chili and steaming soup. Some people like crackers alongside their soup, or chips with their chili, but I love a nice big slice of Skillet Cornbread topped with creamy, whipped Honey Butter. Talk about comfort food, and nothing tastes better on a chilly, winter night…..

You don’t have to make Skillet Cornbread, this recipe also works in an 8 x 8 baking dish. I was looking for something different, something not square, lol

How to make Skillet Cornbread:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a cast iron skillet with baking spray, set aside.

Whisk together eggs, milk, and melted butter in a large bowl…..

Or you could simply break it and place it in your bowl before pouring in some delicious chili. 🙂

If you bake your Cornbread in an 8 x 8 baking pan, it will be thicker…..but square, lol

Notes:

  • My cast iron skillet is 11-inches, so my Skillet Cornbread is on the thin side. An 8-inch skillet would be ideal, but that’s not what I have on hand.
  • Whole milk has more fat than cashew milk which I personally think affects the texture, it’s a bit more crumbly.
  • This cornbread is not sweet like cake, that’s what the honey butter is for.

Enjoy!!
