Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Cornbread
makes 8 servings

Authentic southern cornbread doesn’t have sugar in it & starts with an heirloom cast iron skillet, generally passed down from generation to generation. Since this may not always be possible, start your own family tradition. Cast iron skillets make wonderful gifts & be sure to accompany with my easy recipe.

1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups plain yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp table salt
1 1/2 cups whole buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Dab a small amount of vegetable oil in the bottom & around the sides of a well-seasoned 8-inch cast iron skillet using a paper towel. Place the butter in the skillet & place in the oven for about 5 minutes or until the butter melts. Whisk together the cornmeal, the flour, the baking soda & the salt in a large bowl. Whisk in the buttermilk & the eggs just until blended. Remove the skillet from the oven. Whisk the melted butter into the cornmeal mixture. Pour the cornmeal mixture back into the hot cast iron skillet. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until set in the center. Loosen the edges with a small palate knife. Slice into wedges & serve with additional softened butter.

Old-Fashioned Cornbread Dressing

 Homemade cornbread is a must for a cornbread dressing of quality but the good news is that it can be made in advance if you prefer to save a little time closer to the main gathering. Refrigerate the baked cornbread up to 2 days ahead of the preparations then crumble & proceed with the recipe as directed. Conversely, the cornbread can be prepared, cooled & placed in a zip-top bag & placed in the freezer for up to 2 weeks ahead of time. Simply thaw the cornbread overnight in the refrigerator before proceeding with the recipe as directed. Look for valuable pointers on how to prepare the Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Cornbread needed in order to prepare the recipe & expect it to yield about 6 cups of cornbread crumbs for the dressing preparation.

The Refrigeration Instructions

Prepare Old-Fashioned Cornbread Dressing as directed. Do not bake. Cover the casserole dish & refrigerate up to 2 days ahead of time. Let the dressing stand 30 minutes on the counter top before baking as directed. Use the bake time & temperature as your guide.

The Freezing Instructions

Prepare the recipe as directed. Do not bake. Cover the casserole dish with plastic wrap. Freeze up to 3 weeks. Thaw the casserole in the refrigerator over night. Let the dressing stand 30 minutes on the counter top before baking as directed. To check for doneness, insert a thermometer into the center of the dressing. It should register at least 165 °F. It should be set but moist. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator within 2 hours. Leftovers should be eaten or frozen within 3-4 days.
