Cook time: 25 minutes

Servings: 1 (12-inch) skillet


  • ⅓ cup plus 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 cups plain yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 (15-ounce) can cream-style corn

Preheat oven to 400°. Pour 3 tablespoons oil in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet, and place skillet in oven to preheat.

In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together corn, buttermilk, eggs, and remaining ⅓ cup oil. Stir corn mixture into cornmeal mixture just until combined; stir in cheese. Pour batter into hot skillet.
