My daughter was inspired to make corn bread after watching a cartoon, as they were eating corn cake in the movie. I had a recipe that I used to use long ago it was on the bag of the cornmeal, I always threw out the bag of course thinking, I would find it again, just to never find that brand again!
I have tried other recipes from books and on the net, and every time it was a disappointment! Finally I found a similar recipe to the one I like on allrecipes! The only difference was in my recipe, they used milk not buttermilk and the cornmeal was soaked in the milk.
The recipe was written out for a cast iron pan. Since I didn’t have one, I changed the instructions and used a mixing bowl, I baked it in a 8 inch glass pan. It was amazing! It is a sweet corn bread, so for those of you who love a sweet corn bread this is for you! Its best the day of, the next day it gets a bit dry!
I recently purchased a cast iron pan, and made cornbread with it today! I prepared the corn bread the same way as I did before, the only thing different was I greased my cast iron and let it heat in a 400 degree oven for 10 mins, then added the batter to the pan and baked for 25 mins. Every oven is different so check on it. I checked it with a tooth pick.
