Confession time. I have never made cornbread. Well, except from a box mix, I mean. The box is OK but it never made me lust after it. When I've eaten corn bread at restaurants and various other places, sometimes it's amazingly good and sometimes it's no better than my box mix. Maybe those people are using the same box mix? So the result is that sometimes I have a huge craving for cornbread but I don't make it because I know the box mix will disappoint me. So why, you ask, don't I make my own? I have no earthly idea.
The Cooking Actress. I liked that she used equal parts white and whole wheat flour and her directions seemed simple enough.

1/2 Teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
1/2 Cup milk

Remove the skillet from the oven and swirl the butter around to coat the pan. Pour the batter into the hot skillet and return to the oven for approximately 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Makes 2 - 4 servings.
