There’s something so comforting about a simple skillet cornbread slathered with honey butter. This vanilla bean bread is especially cozy and just so happens to be gluten free.

Ohhh cornbread. I can’t even express how much I love it except for the fact that if one thing could make me ditch my diet completely, it’d be that. Add some honey butter to the mix and it’s game over. This situation happening right here? GOLDEN.

Now, I’m not one to turn down cornbread in any form, but there’s something about a skillet version that I love so much. For one, anything baked in a cast iron skillet is my fave (mine literally lives on my stovetop), but it’s the fact that you can pull it out of the oven piping hot and serve it right then and there, dripping with melty honey butter, that really gets me. After I went gluten-free there were multiple times that I had to sit there in sadness as I watched my family devour the most amazing-looking skillet cornbreads, so I finally decided to take matters into my own hands. I found this cornbread recipe and I haven’t looked back since. Gluten-free or not, it tops the charts.

The other pro? It’s super quick and easy to make and you really don’t need any fancy gadgets – just a good cast iron pan, which I guarantee is one of the best kitchen purchases you’ll ever make. What you get is a soft & tender cornbread that’s just the right amount of sweet, speckled with flecks of vanilla bean and baked to golden-brown perfection. Serve it hot from the oven, don’t skip the honey butter, and try not to devour the whole thing in one sitting. (It really is harder than you might think.)
