Cheddar and Dill Skillet Cornbread

Skillet Cornbread

Serves 12

You’ll Need

  • 1 cup medium-grain cornmeal
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 large egg
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • ½ cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1 cup grated aged cheddar cheese

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F and heat a 10″ cast-iron skillet in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Whisk the cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl combine the milk, honey and egg.
  • 3
    Remove the skillet from the oven and add the butter. Swirl around the pan until melted. Pour the butter into the egg mixture and whisk to combine. Add the egg mixture, dill and ¾ cups of the cheese to the cornmeal, and stir, taking care not to over mix the batter; it should be wet and runny.
  • 4
    Pour the batter into the skillet, scatter the remaining cheese over the top and bake until the edges are browned and a tester inserted into the centre comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool in the skillet for 10 minutes, and serve directly from the pan.

    Before we even get started on this one - I know. Cornbread is a very personal thing to a lot of you. Especially if you're from the south (which I'm not, so give me a little extra leeway here).
