Bandera cornbread recipe - cornbread in an iron skillet

My grandmother gave me my great grandmother’s iron skillet this Christmas, and I couldn’t wait to try it once I got home. I cleaned and reseasoned the iron skillet by smothering it in Crisco and baking it at 400 degrees for about an hour over a cookie sheet to catch the drippings. I worked at Bandera while in college (famous for their delish cornbread), and I’ve been hooked on this recipe ever since. Worked like a charm!
