Corny Cornbread by Paula Deen

This is one of my family's favorites! We eat it with soup and chili.

1/2 C vegetable oil, plus 1/4 cup for greasing pan
1 C self-rising cornmeal
3/4 C self-rising flour
1 C cream-style corn, see Cook's Note*
2 eggs
1 Csour cream
1 C grated sharp cheddar, optional
1/2 t cayenne pepper, optional

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Generously coat a cast iron skillet with up to 1/4 cup vegetable oil. Preheat the pan either in the oven or on the stove over medium-high heat. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl, stirring with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until combined. Pour batter into the preheated cast iron skillet. Place skillet in the oven and bake until golden brown, approximately 30 minutes. If making individual size cornbreads in smaller pans, they will require a shorter cooking time.

*Cook's Note: Frozen creamed corn is sold in the frozen vegetables section of most grocery stores. It is much better than using canned corn.
