My recent foray to an estate sale yielded these beauties:
All these needed was a little TLC to make them as good as new. (You can never really wear out iron skillets and bake-ware.)
Aren’t the corn bread skillets and muffin pans cute? My mom had some just like these, and they inspired me to bake a pan of MawMaw’s old-fashioned Southern corn bread.
Here’s how you make it:
MawMaw’s Southern Corn Bread
Yield: one 9″ skillet loaf or one dozen muffins
1 cup corn meal
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup milk
2 beaten eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease pan with oil or butter.
Sift together the dry ingredients. Blend in the wet ingredients and stir until it has the consistency of a mealy cake batter.
Pour into greased pan(s).
Bake for 18-20 minutes for muffins, 20-25 minutes for a loaf, until golden in color.
Gently cut slices or muffins and lift out of the pan.
Here’s wishing all of my friends a wonderful rest of the week!
