This BBQ cornbread is the perfect side dish for any barbecue meal. It is moist, fluffy, and slightly sweet, with a hint of smokey flavour from the grill. It is also easy to make, using simple ingredients and a cast iron skillet. You can customise it with your favourite additions, such as cheese, jalapeños, or bacon. Serve it warm with butter and honey, and enjoy!

Here’s my recipe for a simple cast iron skillet cornbread:

Cornbread Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups ground cornmeal / polenta
  • 3/4 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 ¼ cups buttermilk
  • 1 stick (115g) of butter, melted; plus a quarter of a stick, unmelted
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 300 g can whole kernel corn, drained

Cornbread Instructions:

  1. Preheat your smoker to 425°F and place your cast iron skillet in to heat up
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, and sugar.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, add the corn kernels and mix until just combined.
  5. Take your cast iron skillet out of the smoker, and melt the 1/4 stick of butter.
  6. Pour the batter into the skillet.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cornbread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  8. Serve the cornbread hot, topped with butter or honey if desired.
