Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees with rack in center. Place shortening in a 9-to-10-inch cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet, and transfer to oven to heat.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In another bowl, whisk together milk and eggs. Pour milk mixture into flour mixture; stir just until combined. Do not overmix; batter should be lumpy.

  • Carefully slide out oven rack. Pour batter into hot skillet. Cook until cornbread is golden brown and firm to the touch, about 25 minutes. Let stand, uncovered, overnight.
