Gluten-Free Southern Skillet Cornbread
Makes one 8-inch skillet
Optional: Add 1 finely chopped green onion (scallion) and 1/4 to 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan Reggiano to the egg mixture before combining all ingredients. Fabulous!
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place an 8-inch cast iron skillet in the oven to preheat.
- Combine the butter, milk, cornmeal and brown sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a slow, steady simmer and whisk for a few minutes until thickened.
- Add eggs, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and whisk lightly. Add cornmeal mixture and stir until well combined.
- Oil the cast iron skillet and pour in the batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until cornbread is golden around the edges and cooked through. Watch carefully.
