4. Mix Cornbread Batter in Large Bowl.


I love to use my Kitchen Aid mixer to mix my cornbread Badder using the whisk attachment. It makes mixing it up the cornbread fast and easy.

In a large bowl, using a pastry blender or fork, combine the cornmeal and butter. Next, add the mayonnaise and buttermilk to cornmeal and butter mixture and mix with whisk until well incorporated.

If your mixture is too dry, just add a little bit more buttermilk, butter, and mayonnaise
until you reach your desired consistency

5. Bake in Preheated Oven Until Lightly Browned.

Once the batter has been poured into the greased iron skillet, place in preheated 450-degree oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. The cornbread should be lightly browned on top, and an inserted toothpick should come out clean when it’s ready.

If you find that the top is getting too dark before the toothpick comes out clean, cover with foil for about 5 minutes to avoid burning. Remove from oven and cool on cake rack for 5 minutes and dump onto a plate. Cut into sections, serve, and enjoy!
