Cast iron skillet cornbread is a southern staple and a must-have alongside any bowl of chili! Tender and savory with crunchy edges, you will quickly fall in love with this easy recipe!


  • 2 Cups Martha White Self Rising Buttermilk Cornmeal Mix
  • 1 1/3 Cups Buttermilk
  • 1/4 Cup Oil
  • 1 Egg
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Bacon Grease


  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Place a cast iron skillet in the oven while it preheats. This is super important! You need the skillet to be smoking hot!
  2. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together gently with a spatula.
  3. Once the oven is heated, remove the hot skillet from the oven. Add 1-2 tablespoons of bacon grease. Let melt. Pour the cornbread mixture right over top in the hot skillet.
  4. Place back in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove and enjoy with chili, soup, butter, or honey butter!
