Mom’s Quick Buttermilk Cornbread is fluffy, sweet, and so easy to put together. Use this one recipe to make a pan of cornbread, cornbread muffins, or even skillet cornbread. All you need is a bowl, a whisk, and a handful of ingredients – most of which you likely already have at home!
• 1/2 cup butter melted
• 2/3 cup sugar
• 2 large eggs
• 1 cup buttermilk
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 cup cornmeal
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
1️⃣ Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease a 9×9 baking pan.
2️⃣ In a medium-sized mixing bowl whisk together melted butter and sugar until smooth, about 60-90 seconds. Whisk in the eggs until well blended, about 30 seconds.
3️⃣ Add in the baking soda, stir to combine, and then slowly pour in the buttermilk while you stir. Add in the cornmeal, flour, and salt and stir until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
4️⃣ Bake in the 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes, until the top starts to brown.
For skillet cornbread, preheat an 8 or 10-inch cast iron skillet in the oven. Once batter is prepared, pour into the hot skillet and return to the oven and bake as directed, about 20 minutes, up to 25 minutes for an 8-inch skillet.
For cornbread muffins, line a muffin tin with cupcake liners or lightly grease with nonstick cooking spray. Divide prepared batter up amongst the 12 muffin cups. Bake in the 375 degree oven for 20 minutes.
