Kentucky Corn Bread


2 c corn meal
1 c wheat flour
2 eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 c oil
1 1/4 c buttermilk


Preheat oven to 425 F.

Put 1 tbsp butter in cast iron skillet and place in oven. (butter has a low smoke point, so keep an eye on it)

Mix oil, buttermilk and eggs.

Mix dry ingredients.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.

Pour into hot cast iron pan.

Bake for 25 min.


This is SOUTHERN style corn bread, as it has no sugar. Texture is dry and crumbly, not soft and cake like. Be authentic at your own risk. (Yes, I am from the North. No, I’m not a fan of Southern cornbread).
