Pumpkin Skillet Cornbread

Pumpkin Skillet Cornbread

Pumpkin purée gives this skillet cornbread a nice fall twist.  Serve alongside soups, chili, or stews.  You can also serve this as at Thanksgiving dinner.  If you don’t have a cast iron skillet then just use a 9-inch square or round baking pan.  This recipe also makes great cornbread muffins.


2 Cups Unbleached flour

1 3/4 Cups White Or Yellow Cornmeal

2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
