Cornbread (Masa)

From Recipe Box


  • 1 - cast iron skillet (probably could do it in a loaf pan but meh)
  • 1/2 stick of butter (yes..)
  • 1/2 cup white flour
  • 1 1/2 cup masa
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (see notes)


  1. Toss 2 tbsp of butter in the cast iron pan (put it in the oven) and turn on the oven to 425F
  2. mix all dry ingredients
  3. add softened butter (remaining 2 tbsp) & 2 eggs
  4. stir the crap out of it until it's all together
  5. add enough milk to make it look like brownie batter
  6. bake at 425F for 20 minutes - the edges will turn a nice brown and the center will get slightly golden looking
  7. let it cool for like 5-10m before eating.

(makes 8 decently sized wedges)


  • Masa soaks up a LOT of liquid so you may end up having to add more milk than you think. It needs to be the consistency of brownie batter.
