  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup corn oil
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree


  • Preheat oven to 400º F.
  • Stir together flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and pumpkin spice in a bowl; set aside.
  • Add the butter to a 10-inch cast-iron skillet. Place in the preheated oven about 3 minutes or until butter melts. Remove pan from oven; swirl butter in the pan to coat bottom and sides.
  • Combine eggs, buttermilk, oil and pumpkin puree. Add egg mixture to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened. Pour batter into hot skillet.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cut into wedges or squares. Serve warm.


If you don’t have an iron skillet you can use an 8x8x2-inch square baking pan instead.
You can drizzle honey to make it extra yummy.
