It’s that time of year again…’s camping season!  I am practically bouncing out of my seat with excitement .  We will be going on our first camping trip this weekend, and I can’t wait.  It may seem funny to some, that of all things I wanted to do for mother’s day – it’s camping.  However, I truly enjoy being out in nature with my family hiking, biking & of course cooking.  I am so excited to take my children to this particular state park, because it is one I have gone to since I was a child.  It will be their very first time there, and I am anticipating how much they are going to love it – especially all the geological aspects of these particular parks.  We opened our camper last weekend in preparation, and as I sat down on the couch inside – my mind started racing thinking about all the yummy campfire meals I will be preparing this season. One of the recipes I usually prepare is cornbread.  The cornbread recipe I am about to share is so easy. The delectable crust formed on the outside of the bread from cooking it in a cast iron pan is fantastic. I hope you enjoy it!


1/2 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 cup buttermilk (or you can substitute regular milk)

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup corn meal

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

* I often throw in a handful of cheese, and sometimes some chopped jalapeno. Have fun with it and don’t be afraid to experiment.


Preheat your oven to 375°F.  Grease a 8- inch cast iron skillet or a 8- inch baking dish.

Place butter and sugar in a bowl, and stir together.

Add in the eggs, and mix until blended together.

In a separate bowl combine buttermilk and baking soda. Then pour & stir in the bowl with the rest of the wet ingredients.

Add cornmeal, flour & salt. Stirring until combined and few lumps remain.

Pour into prepared pan.

Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
