Next time I would like to introduce you another one of my best Cast iron skillet cornbread. It is WARM SWEET POTATO SKILLET CORNBREAD. Once I think about making this special cornbread, I was very curious about adding sweet potato to corn. But I wasn’t sure if it would taste more like sweet potato, or corn. Would it be too sweet and spicy taking away from what I love about cornbread? After I made it in my kitchen, I found it is really delicious. It was just as moist as traditional cornbread, but the addition of the sweet potato provided a light and delicate flavor, and it isn’t too sweet! I also found that one medium sized sweet potato perfectly produced one level sized cup mash. Hope you like my next cornbread recipe!
