Cheddar Cheese Corn Bread

Yum
Cheddar Cheese Corn Bread

The weather cooled off a little yesterday, so I thought it was okay to use the oven. What a perfect time to try out my cheddar cheese cornbread recipe.

I think corn bread goes well with just about any meal or if you're like me I like it just as a snack with plenty of butter of course.

I wanted to make this savory so I added sharp cheddar cheese. I also wanted to try something different and bake this in my cast iron skillet.

Cast iron skillet cornbread recipe
Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread:

As always I used my KitchenAid Stand Mixer to prepare the batter. You will find all of the ingredients below.

I preheated the oven to 400 degrees and placed my 8-inch cast iron skillet in the oven while I made the batter.

When the batter was ready I took the skillet out of the oven and buttered the inside with 1 tablespoon of butter. Then I poured the batter into the skillet.

I placed the skillet back in the oven and baked the cornbread for 30 minutes.

Now, I need to explain the mistake that I made. I used my 8-inch cast iron skillet. The cornbread should have baked for 20 to 25 minutes.

This was too much batter for the 8-inch skillet causing me to bake it for 30 minutes to get the center of the cornbread cooked.

Not that it wasn't delicious because all of it is gone already. I just think the edges cooked a little too much.

So, if you're going to try this cast iron skillet cornbread I recommend using a 10-inch skillet. I know that I will the next time.

Using a 10-skillet the bake time should be 20 to 25 minutes.


Here are the ingredients for cheddar cheese corn bread: 

1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cups yellow cornmeal (I used Quaker)
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 egg (beaten)
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon butter (For the skillet)

Mix all dry ingredients together, then add oil, milk, honey, and egg. Mix until it forms a batter then add the cup of cheddar cheese continue until it well mixed.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.

  3. My corn bread recipe isn't one I have ever played around with, but I love the idea of adding cheese and honey. I still cook mine in the cast iron skillet too and use my great-grandmother's recipe. I am quite tempted to add the honey next time.
