Easy Cornbread Recipe

This cornbread is cake-like and you can make it in a square or round cake pan or in a cast iron skillet.

Hello Friends! I am loving that spring has sprung! This week, we enjoyed a couple of meals al fresco and even made it down to the beach. I love visiting the beach this time of year because the summer crowds have not yet arrived, so it is a little quieter and calmer.

I could just spend hours watching the waves and the sailboats go by. I look forward to many more picnics at the beach in the coming weeks.

Speaking of the outdoors, this easy cake-like homestyle cornbread recipe is perfect for outdoor barbecues and picnics at the beach. It is also perfect side dish for homemade chili and as a lunch box treat. It packs well and is just slightly sweet and goes perfectly with a little scoop of creamy honey butter.




If you are wanting to know how to make cornmeal in a cast iron skillet, this recipe works well as written as long as you use a heavy cast iron skillet that is 9″ or 10″ in diameter, like this one.


Plus there is nothing like baking from scratch!

This Easy Cornbread Recipe from Cornmeal goes great with casseroles too!

Have made this a few times and we absolutely love it. It is quick, easy and taste better than the box. I have started adding some honey for additional sweetness.
