    BAKED CORNBREAD for 10” skillet (cast iron's the best)


    OVEN_Preheat to 390


    SKILLET_pour in about a TBSP or more OLIVE OIL and heat on stove top while oven is getting hot (adjust heat/timing so that the oil is near smoking by the time the batter and oven are ready).


    2 generous heaping cups CORNMEAL (I prefer yellow) in a mixing bowl


    1/8 tsp SALT


    1 generous overflowing TBSP OLIVE OIL


    2 EGGS


    12 oz can EVAPORATED MILK


    Mix ingredients well and pour into hot skillet (oh, the smell and sound of sizzling cornbread batter).


    Let batter sizzle on stove top while you rinse out the mixing bowl. Place skillet in oven and bake for 23 minutes. Enjoy.

    Yea Richard, I think it is a common method. Hehe, I've done it so many times I can smell and hear the sizzling batter now.....

    I just began cooking my cornbread in olive oil, and with olive oil also included in the batter, 5-6 years ago and everyone, including me, likes it. And it's healthy for you.

    But sometimes I'll backslide and use bacon grease........

    That's the way I cook mine too; but I use regular corn oil in it. I'll have to try the olive oil. And I DO put sugar in mine. Man, when you flip it out of the skillet, & it's hot, & you put butter on it.....mmmmm! I love the crusty part!

    You're gonna think this really odd, I guess it is; Cher i searched BOC for your hot water cornbread recipe, i remembered reading from a while back and I'm getting ready in just a few minutes to deep fry some flathead i cleaned yesterday and told my wife I wanted to have hot water cornbread instead of hushpuppies, she says get a recipe and yours is the one I thought of, and my recipe popped up along with yours......

    ANYWAY, I've just now printed your recipe off for her. We're gonna try it. I know we'll like it; we like ALL cornbread. Thanks.

    You are making me hungry. I LOVE corn bread. I have never used olive oil in it, although I do cook with olive oil. I preheat my skillet also, but I use butter or margarine , and no sugar. I also agree with the yellow corn meal. I like to get stone ground when I can find it, I like the texture better.

    Excellent! I love the texture of it. We used Splenda instead of sugar; it would be good with no sweetener added to it, next time I'll try it that way.

    Thanks Larry, I am from Iowa and I even love cornbread. Can remember many a morning with Mom heating that skillet. Course some sidepork and fried eggs always went good with it too. And honey and lots of creamery butter dripping off as it you shove it in your mug.

    We got plenty of corn in this state so it is not hard to find.
