Skillet Masa Cornbread

Cornbread. Made with maseca. In a skillet. Seriously delicious. This recipe is courtesy of The Dude.


  • 1 cup maseca
  • 1 cup yellow corn meal
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp xantham gum
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 4 tbs softened butter
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tbs honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degress F. Place cast iron skillet in oven (we used a 12 inch) so it can preheat with the oven.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients.
  3. Smoosh in (the technical term) all but 1 tbs of the butter.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine milk and honey.
  5. Add wet ingredients into dry. Mix well.
  6. (Carefully!) Remove pan from oven and grease with remaining 1 tbs of butter.
  7. Pour batter into pan and spread evenly.
  8. Bake for 21 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Serve immediately or place on rack to cool.

Finished Product:


Next time, we’ll try adding jalapenos, cheese, and/or corn. Yum!
