Mini Skillet Corn Bread Recipe

Mini Skillet Corn Bread Recipe

My husband says this recipe is close enough to the corn bread his mother used to make, so I consider it a winner. His criteria were to "put butter on the corn bread without it crumbling to pieces" and "to be able to break it up into a glass of milk without it turning to mush."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons corn bread/muffin mix
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar


  • 1. Place butter in a 6-in. ovenproof skillet or baking dish. Melt in a 425° oven; tilt to coat bottom and sides. In a bowl, combine corn bread mix and cornmeal. In another bowl, beat egg, milk and vinegar. Add to cornmeal mixture; stir until moistened. Pour into prepared skillet. Bake, uncovered, for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Yield: 2 servings.
