This Buttermilk Cornbread is light tender and has a beautifully moist crumb! It's easy to make in a skillet or baking dish and only uses one bowl!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C). Place a pat of butter (about 1/2 tablespoon) in a 10" cast iron skillet. Place in oven to allow skillet to warm up and melt the butter. Or if you don't have a cast iron skillet lightly grease a 9x9 baking pan, set aside.
Meanwhile, In a large bowl combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add in the buttermilk, eggs, and butter. Stir just until combined, don't overmix!
Spoon into prepared pan and spread into an even layer. Bake for 18-22 minutes or just until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Don't overbake.
