Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread

Homemade cornbread isn’t as hard as you think. It’s also even better when it’s cooked in a cast iron skillet. I use milk in my recipe, but you can also use buttermilk. I pair this with my chili recipe and it’s a perfect fall dinner. I top the cornbread with butter and honey.
