Simple Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread

This easy three-ingredient cast iron skillet cornbread is as simple as it gets and makes a great base for adding more adventurous flavors.

Cheddar cheese and jalapeños, avocados and bacon, blue cheese and buffalo chicken, or cranberries and oranges are all tasty ways you could modify this classic recipe. Of course, it's just as tasty served warm from the skillet with butter or honey!
