I cook my corn bread in a cast iron skillet in the house. Never tried it in a DO. But I always preheat my skillet before pouring in the batter. Never had a problem.

Drastic changes of temperatures can cause cast iron to crack; but, maybe there was a small, nearly invisible fissure or a weak spot already in the DO. You may never know the full answer.

I found my problem I pre heated the do on a coleman stove than say it in my do table while I heated my charcoal with cold batter inside yep drastic temp changes I should have had got coals under it before I poured the xirn bread batter into it while the coals heatedvit as I poured into the pan.
