Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread

This is so yummy! Deliciously moist and golden brown, this cornbread is a crowd pleaser. Pairs nicely with chili, soup, or on its own! I love how easy it is – just mix all of the ingredients and pour into the cast iron skillet.

I love using Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 gluten free flour – it cooks just like regular flour but without the gluten. Always get organic corn meal too if you can find it. Smear the warm bread with butter and enjoy!
