Sourdough Skillet Cornbread

Sourdough Skillet Cornbread

This sourdough skillet cornbread goes great with a hearty soup, stew, or chili, or your favorite summer barbecue dish! I like to serve it with cultured honey butter.

To make Sourdough Skillet COrnbread:

  • 1 cup organic all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour (I use a blend)
  • 2 cups cornmeal (I like medium grind, but whatever you prefer)
  • 1 cup sourdough starter (freshly discarded or fresh)
  • 1 cup water OR water kefir
  • 3 pastured eggs
  • 1/2 cup grass-fed butter
  • 1/2 cup organic maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon aluminum free baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, cornmeal, starter, and water (or water kefir). Let mixture sit for at least an hour and up to 12 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put a buttered cast iron skillet into the oven. If you don’t have one, just butter a square Pyrex (or similar pan), but do not put it into the oven yet.
  3. Add eggs, softened butter, and maple syrup and mix.
  4. Add baking powder, baking soda, and salt and mix.
  5. Immediately put into your cast iron pan ( I use a 10 inch) and put the pan in the oven.
  6. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
