Do you flip your cornbread out of the skillet and call that the top... or do you simply leave it in the skillet and call that the top.

What he said. If you feel the need to flip it, you must be a Yankee \:D

I flip it out onto my plate. Bottom is already crispy when it comes out of the oven. That's the reason for having your cast iron piping hot before putting the batter in it.

Flip it out and then return the pone to the skillet and crust up the top. Extra crusty/crispy on both sides.

Flip it out. I don't care what you call either side, but I don't want to fool with a hot skillet when I am cutting my cornbread.

I flip it out on a plate when I take it out of the oven. Stops the cooking and helps prevent drying out. Can't handle dry cornbread.

Flip ours out on a plate. Never seen it done any other way. Don't really want a 500 degree cast iron skillet on the supper table.

How many put sugar in your cornbread. That'll show who's a yankee. \:D

I just ate some made in the form of little pan-fish(cast-iron mold).

I haven't met a form of cornbread I really disliked. \:\)

Here's mine:

Combine and mix in a bowl

2 Cups self rising corn meal
1 cup oil (peanut)

Combine and mix in different bowl:

4 eggs, beaten
16 oz. Sour Cream
1 Cup of Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 Can of White Cream Corn
2 Tbs Sugar
2 Tsp Salt

Combine the two bowls and mix thoroughly

-Preheat oven to 425 and heat up cast iron skillet (10 minutes) with a bit of oil on the surface
-Dust the surface of the skillet with cornmeal
-pour the mixture into skillet and place in oven for approx 40 minutes
-use the toothpick test to check for doneness

You can alsu use the above recipe for Johnny Cakes.
You can also add Jalapenos if in the mood.

Interesting bit of Cornbread history: Traditionally, Southerner's cornbread only used white cornmeal where Northerners preferred Yellow cornmeal. At some point in the last 50 or so years, that tendency has disappeared.

I think white cornbread has a very bland taste. I have tried it with and without some sugar and honey, really can't taste much difference.

Now, the class of butter you use, that's a different topic.

And if you use it sop up white beans and hamhocks while biting on thick cut white onions, man, that is one great meal.

Ain't much better than supping up some fatty, white beans with some good cornbread.

We keep it simple around here. My cornbread recipe:

2 c. home ground corn meal ( we buy it from a guy my brother works with)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 egg beaten
2 c. buttermilk
1/4 cup melted fat or cooking oil

Combine dry ingredients, then add egg, milk, and fat. Stir until moistened, but do not beat. Pour into greased hot skillet. Bake @ 400 degrees for approx. 20 minutes.

I didn't realize just how terrible commercial cornmeal was until I started using "home grown". BIG difference.

Just got one of my grandmaw's old cast iron skillets today and you better believe some cornbread will be made tomorrow. And for what it is worth we will leave it in the skillet and cut it there. I might even get out a pack of blackberries from the freezer and make a cobbler this weekend

My mom always just flipped it out on a plate.
First cuts were always down the side, add butter and a little salt and WOW \:D
