The Easy and Moist Skillet Cornbread has a fantastic honey butter glaze on top and it is the perfect thing to go along with so many different meals!

Here are some tips for making my Easy and Moist Skillet Cornbread:

  • While a cast iron skillet is the preferred dish to bake this cornbread in, you can also use another baking dish if you do not have one. An 8X8 baking dish would be an appropriate size for a thicker bread.
  • DO NOT overmix the batter! Combine the ingredients just until they are well incorporated. You can cause the cornbread to become dense and tough if you overwork it.
  • You could also bake this in muffin tins for an even faster version of this recipe. You would need to reduce the baking time to do this.
  • If you would like to make this recipe even more delicious, you could add in cheese, creamed corn, bacon, jalapeños or sausage.
