If you come up with something special, let me know.
Preheat oven to 375F. In a medium bow., combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and sugar; set aside.
Place butter in a 10 inch cast-iron skillet; set in oven until butter melts and begins to brown. Let it brown, this adds Character to the bread. After all who's to eat something that looks plain or boring.
In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk and eggs; whisk to combine and add in Cheddar.
Stir buttermilk mixture into dry ingredients until just combined. Use the 1/8 cup water to rinse cup of buttermilk out into mix. NOTE: Some cooks put the melted butter in the bread mix at this time, BUT IN THIS RECIPE DO NOT, leave it in the skillet. I'm a very picky person when it comes to taste. Pour the bread mix into hot skillet and return to oven.
Start testing ~~at; about 15 minutes. Bake until skewer inserted into center tests clean, about 18-20 minutes

I am a big cornbread fan. I love my cornbread to be soft, but yet firm, crisp but yet chewy. I hate it with a passion when it falls apart while eating. It falls in your lap or down your shirt or blouse. It gets all over the table, all over you, and all over the floor. Where is the joy of eating with this going on. Its a mess any way you take it.
This is THE BEST cornbread recipes I have every eaten, bar none. Almost all recipes of this type use oil instead of butter. I have made this recipe over a dozen time and modified it to get fromula. With this recipe I have NEVER had it to sticks when done. The high heat also contributes to the fine results.
I am not afraid to say you will have great results and be proud to show this one off to anyone. Last but not least, a big old glass of cornbread and milk emmmm.....good.
Best cornbread I''ve ever had. Perfect ever time.
