Skillet Campfire Bread

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...My family calls this kitchen sink bread, so named because everything but the kitchen sink goes into its creation. It is a gussied up version of cornbread made with ingredients that make it a perfect accompaniment for barbecue or Southwestern-style meals. The bread is very easy to make and the recipe is so straight forward that it requires no special instructions from me. If you like your cornbread with heat, I do hope you'll give this recipe a try. It was developed by America's Test Kitchen and Ireally think you'll enjoy it. Here is the recipe.

Skillet Campfire Bread...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite courtesy of America's Test kitchen


1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1/4 cup jarred jalapenos, drained and chopped
2 scallios, sliced thin
1 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs
10 tablespoons unsalted butter


1) Adjust rack to center of oven and preheat to 450 degrees F.
2) Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir in cheese, jalapenos and scallions and toss with fingers until coated with flour.
3) In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk and eggs and whisk until smooth.
4) Melt butter in a 10-inch cast iron skillet set over medium heat. Pour all but 1 tablespoon of butter into buttermilk mixture and whisk to incorporate. Gently fold buttermilk mixture into flour mixture until combined. Mixture will be thick.
5) Scrape batter into hot skillet and smooth top. Bake until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 15 to 20 minutes. Let bread cool slightly in pan before removing. Best served warm. Yield: 8 to 10 servings.

sono arrivata da te attratta da quella grande padella di ghisa... peccato la traduzione non sia delle migliori. Dovrò fare altre ricerche per capire tutti gli ingredienti. Buona giornata!

Wow this is really easy and good.
I´m in Madrid now, which is not my home town, I´ve come to visit my daughter and to see the catwalks in Madrid fashion week, hers will be on Saturday, well hers no, the designer she´s working for (since May), so I think we will have to wait for the next one to appreciate her work.
In the meantime, love from Madrid.
