Though it's a common and inexpensive ingredient, cornmeal can take many forms -- bread, muffins, puddings, spoon breads, and more. Whether it's salty or sweet, crumbly or creamy, cornbread can be a perfect accompaniment to all types of meals.
Make cornbread the old-fashioned way with a cast-iron skillet.
This honey-sweetened buttermilk cornbread from Chef Emeril Lagasse is made with all cornmeal -- no flour -- giving it a crumbly texture and rich, toasty flavor. The cornbread is baked in a cast iron skillet and can be prepared in the oven or directly over an outdoor grill.
