Skillet Cornbread Recipe

 In Recipes

Fill your house with the heavenly aroma of this Southern favorite—a delightful pairing for our Catfish and Cajun Creme. This easy-to-bake cornbread only requires 8 ingredients including yellow cornmeal, almond milk, ghee (or grass-fed butter), maple syrup, sea salt, and sweet paprika that make for an all-around healthier rendition. But to enjoy it in its full glory, serve up with a pat of butter or a spoonful of molasses.

Serves 6-8


  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ cups of yellow cornmeal
  • 1½ cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 3-4 tablespoons grass fed butter, or ghee
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon sweet paprika


  1. Preheat your oven to 425° F. Season an 8 or 10-inch cast iron skillet with 3 tablespoons of butter, and place in the oven until the butter melts.
  1. While the skillet is heating through, combine your dry ingredients in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, mix together the almond milk, eggs, and maple syrup.
  1. Add the cornmeal mixture to the wet ingredients, and stir until combined.
  1. Remove the buttered skillet from the oven, and pour the batter over top. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or just until the cornbread turns golden brown.
  1. Serve with butter, additional maple syrup, or sea salt.
