Browned Butter, Molasses, Orange + Rosemary Skillet Bread

What you’ll need:

  • 2 cups plain white cornmeal
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/3 cups buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 stick of butter
  • zest & juice of 1 large orange
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 6-8 sprigs of rosemary, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of canola oil
  • Optional toppings – orange marmalade, honey, or butter

What you’ll do:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Pour canola oil in cast iron, place in oven and forget for now.
  3. Combine cornmeal, egg, buttermilk, powder, salt, zest, orange juice, molasses and rosemary. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated well.
  4. In a small saucepan, heat butter to medium … once butter browns, pour directly into batter and continue to mix in.
  5. Remove cast iron from oven and pour batter directly into skillet. Edges will brown immediately (perfect).
  6. Bake for approximately 20-25 mins, until golden brown.
  7. Serve with orange marmalade, butter, honey or nothing at all. Enjoy!
