  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter for pan
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place a 9-inch cast iron skillet in the oven to get it really hot.

  2. Combine the dry ingredients in bowl: flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  3. In a separate large bowl, whisk the buttermilk, milk, eggs, and 1/2 cup melted butter until well-combined.

  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix until your batter is fully incorporated and smooth. Do not overmix.

  5. Remove hot skillet from oven. Coat the hot skillet with 1 tablespoon of butter. Immediately, add the batter and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean and the top is golden brown.

  6. Let rest for 10-15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
