Skillet Cornbread

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups stone-ground yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 medium pickled jalapeno chile, minced (about 2 tablespoons)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Put butter in a 9-inch cast-iron skillet; place in oven until butter is melted and pan is heated through, 3 to 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk cornmeal, sugar, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and buttermilk.

  3. Carefully remove hot skillet from oven; immediately pour butter into the buttermilk mixture, and whisk to combine. Using a pastry brush, coat bottom and sides of pan with remaining butter.

  4. Stir cornmeal mixture into buttermilk mixture until just moistened. Stir in jalapeno. Scrape batter into hot skillet; bake until golden, about 25 minutes. Let cool at least 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
