My favorite way to eat cornbread - with a ton of jalapenos and fresh corn. :)

Using fresh jalapenos and corn in the cornbread keeps it nice and moist and makes it so much tastier. I also add a little cumin and chili powder to my cornbread which helps balance out the sweetness.

And as a plus, this jalapeno cornbread recipe takes less than an hour to make so you can have it on the dinner table in no time. :D

Step 1: ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup AP flour
  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2-3/4 cup corn (fresh or frozen, defrosted)
  • 1 fresh jalapeno
You'll also need an oven set to 350 F and a 9x9 baking pan. :)

Make sure to use fresh jalapeno - canned or jarred is too vinegar-y and will alter the taste and texture of the bread.
I made this for dinner tonight. It was easy to make and extremely moist. I cooked it in a greased iron skillet. It turned out great! Next time though, I'm leaving out the cumin and chili powder as I found it a bit strong. Great recipe though!
Yum. My favorite!
It looks so pretty as well as delicious!
Mmm! I didn't think you could put anything besides corn in cornbread! This sounds delicious :)
