I had a taste for some cornbread today, and I wanted to try out this recipe I saved. As I perused the ingredients list I saw that I had everything needed. Except for fresh jalapeños, ugh. I was not in the mood for a store run, so I decided to use some of the jalapeños I had stored in the fridge. I figured if I rinsed them off they wouldn’t be too bad right? Haha.
On top of that I forgot to add in the cayenne pepper. I tried to go back and add it in the batter after I had already put it in the oven. SMH. Thankfully, my cornbread still turned out great! Y’all this cornbread tastes so good. It’s moist and the flavors are excellent. Follow this recipe to the tee, and I’m sure yours will come out even better than mine.
Preheat your oven to 425F. In a mixing bowl, whisk together your flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking soda, salt, ground pepper, cayenne pepper and diced jalapeños. (Use fresh, I didn’t have any.)
Whisk in your wet ingredients (buttermilk & eggs).
Add in your cheese. (Ignore that whisk I used a mixing spatula)
Do not over-mix.
Butter up an 8 inch baking pan very well so your cornbread won’t stick. Then pour in your batter. Bake at 425F for 20 minutes. The top of the cornbread should be golden and a toothpick should come out cleanly.
Top with some butter, and serve warm.

I think this cornbread recipe is a new favorite of mine. Let me know if you try it.
