Sweet Skillet Cornbread from the Standmixer Winner

If you are new to my blog, then you may not know that I gave a Hamilton Beach Standmixer away a while back.  All I asked from the winner is a photograph with the mixer.  Today, I got pictures of the winner using the mixer with a recipe!  Thank you Misti for submitting a recipe along with the photographs!  BTW, I LOVE THE CANISTERS and THE PLATE!!


  • 1 c. yellow corn meal
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 c. shortening. soft


Sift together dry ingredients into A Hamilton Beach Mixer, add egg, milk and shortening.  Beat until smooth, about 1 minute.  DO NOT OVER BEAT.  Pour into greased cast iron skillet.  Bake in hot oven @ 425′ for 20 to 25 mins.  Serve warm with butter.

HINT: (1) I sprinkle more sugar on the top of batter before I bake it… (2) I add a few spoonfuls of shortening in the skillet and melt it on the stove top. This softens the shortening and also greases the skillet at the same time.
