Southern Skillet Cornbread {Gluten Free}

The trick to this great tasting cornbread isn’t the ingredients but the cooking method using the cast iron skillet with the melted butter. It makes the cornbread crispy and moist! I’ve made this many times and it tastes just like the southern cornbread my granny used to make 🙂
