Southern Cornbread Recipes

A true Southern cornbread recipe produces cornbread that is dense and savory. The following recipes require only the simplest ingredients to make classic and traditional cornbread that would make any Southerner proud. For the best results, each of these recipes should be made in a cast iron skillet. This is not a requirement, but a good cast iron skillet will help your cornbread get perfectly golden brown. Any of these recipes would be excellent with pot roast, chili, or even on their own with a pat of butter on top.

I love cornbread! I've always wanted to make skillet cornbread like my friend's grandma made for us. There looks to be several recipes to choose from.

I had no idea there were so many different ways to make cornbread. The sweet recipes look like a lot of fun.

These look so good! Some of them look just like my grandma's.

I'm not a huge fan of cornbread, but these recipes look really versatile and delicious. I'll definitely look here before the next big family gathering!
