Griddled Cornbread

banner

Approximate Cost: $7

This recipe comes from a former coworker, Brook Gossard, who was a paragon of grace under pressure (the pressure of kitchen life and of the human condition generally). After a considerable amount of analysis, I determined that it would be good to griddle it in butter. Ideally, top it with something creamy and something sweet, like honey. It’s a good accompaniment to the buttermilk panna cotta, and would be a good vehicle for strawberries, crème fraîche, and sorrel.

  5. Fill the pan and bake at 425°F for 35 min. If it browns too quickly, cover with foil.

  6. Rotate once. It’s done when an inserted toothpick comes out completely clean.

  7. Allow to cool before portioning. Fry slices in a nonstick pan with some butter.
