Soaked Skillet Cornbread

  in Breads, Recipes

Corn is a hard to digest grain and soaking the cornmeal for a few hours makes it more digestible and the nutrients more absorbable.

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups cornmeal
1 1/2 cups buttermilk 
1 tablespoon sugar, or more if you like your cornbread sweeter
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/4 cup butter, melted

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, and buttermilk. Cover and let mixture sit overnight or up to 24 hours.
  2. When ready to bake cornbread, heat oven to 400°F and spray a 10-inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray.
  3. Stir the remaining ingredients into the cornmeal mixture and pour into skillet. Smooth out the top with a rubber spatula.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool about 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with butter and honey.
