In a rush? You can skip straight to the Classic Skillet Cornbread recipe on my Tumblr or you can jump to my Just the Basics section.

Some people debate whether cornbread is actually bread. In some places, cornbread is actually considered cake rather than bread. However, it also has about a million nicknames, or you know, at least eleven.

In case you were wondering what those names are: corn tash, corn dodger, corn pone, ashcake, journey cake, corn cake, batter bread, Johnny cake, corn dab, spoon bread, and hush puppy.
