I love cornbread and we make it (as well as cookies, cakes, pizza...) in our microwave/convection oven all the time.

I do turn off the turntable, but I can't imagine that make much difference. We do not use anything cast iron. For the cornbread I use a glass baking dish or one of our silicone baking dishes. For ours we've found using the conventional oven times and temps works best. We always put whatever we're baking on a rack, not the turntable.

Not all micro/convection ovens cook in less time. We are on our 3rd Dometic under warranty and the temp levels are way low. About 125 degrees less than set temp and Dometic says 75 degrees below set temp is acceptable. I find that I must add lots of extra time and set the temp higher when I cook using convection. The microwave is also underpowered. When this one bites the dust and is out of warranty, I will replace it with a better brand.

Be sure to use a rack when baking in the convection. It's different than the microwave mode.

Love cornbread cooked in cast iron. Temp 400 for about 30/40 minutes in convection oven. Only diference is a fan to move air around so you dont have to turn halfway through.

My wife is a cornbread artist. Last time I cooked a burger in a cast iron skillet, I was caught. I thought she was going to divorce me.

Kathryn always oils the skillet and gets it smoking before putting the cornbread mixture in. And she puts in about 20% flour and 80% Martha White Hot Rize cornmeal. And she puts a little more oil and buttermilk in the batter.

It just takes a little practice when you're using an alternative method of cooking. I suggest you get a 4 1/2" grinder with a metal carborundum cut off wheel, and remove the handle on a cast iron skillet.

Remember that it's a sin to cook cornbread in anything other than a cast iron skillet. Never, ever put any sugar in the mix. And the use of Jiffy cornbread mix is prohibited in the South.

Apparently it's also a sin to cook anything else in the cornbread skillet. Hadn't ever heard of that particular obsession. What's wrong with a burger? Keeps the skillet seasoned !
