Ingredients

For the cornbread:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup stone-ground yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
For the sauce:
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can fruit cocktail, drained
  • 1 (12-ounce) can maraschino cherries, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • Whipped cream, for serving

Directions

Special equipment: 1 (9-inch) cast iron skillet

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mix together flour, cornmeal, heavy cream, eggs, butter, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.

In the cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, add sugar and butter and let melt. When melted, remove from heat and add remaining ingredients. Be sure to place maraschino cherries evenly throughout. Pour in batter and smooth top with a spatula. Bake 25 minutes, until cornbread is golden and a toothpick comes out clean.

To serve: place a platter over skillet and invert cake. It should slide out easily. Slice into wedges and serve warm with whipped cream.
