Southern Skillet Cornbread

Real Deal Southern Cast Iron Cornbread

You know I posted a recipe just the other day for some very special cornbread – my Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread. And declared (oh but I do declare a lot of things – just because it’s my blog, lol) that being a Northerner I liked my cornbread light & fluffy & moist.

Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread

This easy Skillet Cornbread is super moist, light fluffy and cheesy with a bit of a bite from the roasted jalapeno. You won't be able to stop eating it!

So how do you all like your cornbread? Me, I’m a Northerner, through and through. I like mine light and fluffy and moist and in this instance, with a bit of a bite from jalapeno. It’s not too much heat, but just enough to make you sit up and take notice.

Famous Dave’s Cornbread

The lightest, sweetest, fluffiest cornbread with a honey jalapeno glaze. To die for!

If you want an incredible, moist, fluffy cornbread, you’ve got to try Famous Dave Anderson’s recipe. He claims it’s even better than his corn muffins that are served at his Famous Dave’s restaurants. I agree!

Banana Brownie Bread

Super simple six ingredients - and this ooey, gooey chocolaty bread starts off with a boxed mix!

I came across a super easy recipe and just HAD to make it. Mainly because I’m at the folk’s house right now and they have a kazillion boxes of brownie mix in the pantry. And who doesn’t like Brownies and Banana Bread? And why not combine them?

Pat Nixon’s Date Nut Bread

this is such a classic date bread and perfect for fall (or anytime!)

I had such rave reviews from the family last week on my Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread that I decided not to rest on my laurels but to forge ahead & make Date Nut Bread. I haven’t made or had it for years, maybe decades, but I came across a fun, retro recipe from Pat Nixon, and couldn’t resist!

Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread

This Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread has become a new fave at our house - maybe at yours, too?

I love that Quick Breads just seem to scream “good home cooking” don’t you? They’re great for all kinds of occasions: when company is dropping by, for brunch, or maybe to take to the office or to a family who needs a bit of a boost. This would make anyone feel better, at least while they’re eating it!

Classic Banana Bread

This is the banana bread recipe you want! I've been making it for over 50 years and haven't found a better one!

About the only thing I like better than my Pumpkin Bread is a really, really good Banana Bread. I can’t tell you how many Banana Breads I’ve tried over the years. This one, right here, is my fave. I love it, the folks love it. My Da dubbed it the “Best Banana Bread I’ve ever had.”

Ballymaloe’s Irish Soda Bread . $1.00

For years I’ve made Ballymaloe’s Brown Soda Bread, and we’ve always liked it, but this year I decided to try their white for my St. Patrick’s Day dinner. I don’t know what the hold out was on my part – some nod to tradition combined with a commitment to eat more whole grains. I feel like a sinner, but this bread is so beautiful!
