ACTIVE TIME: 15 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 35 minutes
Yield: 8 servings


  • Heat oven to 425ºF.
  • Place a 10-inch cast iron skillet into the oven.
  • In a bowl, combine the cornmeal, salt, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Whisk together until well combined.
  • In a large bowl, combine the buttermilk, eggs, and creamed corn, whisking together to combine thoroughly. Add the dry ingredients to the buttermilk mixture and stir to combine. If the batter will not pour, add more buttermilk to the batter.
  • Swirl the canola oil in the hot cast-iron skillet. Pour the batter into the skillet and bake until the cornbread is golden brown and springs back upon the touch, about 20 minutes.
