Who doesn’t like cornbread? If you’re one of those people then you obviously are needing this recipe. There is no way that you’ll turn down a piece of this mouth watering yellow fluff! Just ask my husband…he ate a whole loaf before dinner;)
We’ve all had cornbread, but not everyone’s mouths have been graced with my Mother’s award winning sweet cornbread! Seriously though, she really did win a lot of cornbread cook off’s with this little gem!!
This recipe is perfect on it’s own, but I like to stir things up a bit by adding in some jalapeños! I’m all about that sweet & fiery combo these days;) You can pour this entire recipe into a 13×9 pan or divide into 2-loaf pans if you would like. It’s really up to you, but I like the loaf pan way because I can make one jalapeño & the other original (for the wussies in my life lol;). Also, if you use loaf pans, it’s easy to freeze one loaf for use later! This cornbread freezes beautifully & is always a crowd pleaser.
So, if you dare to serve the best cornbread you’ve ever tasted & are ready to be asked to make it again & again then read on!
1 1/2 Cups flour
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup yellow cornmeal
3 Teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 Cups milk
1/2 Cup oil
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Pour all ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly until completely combined.
-At this time you can add a 1/2 cup of chopped jalapeños if you would like some sweet & spicy cornbread or leave it just as it is. If you are going to make loaves & want only one with Jalapeños, stir in 1/4 cup chopped peppers into one of the loaf pans batter.
*Using 13×9- Pour entire bowl of batter into a 13×9 pan that has been prepared with cooking oil.
*Using 2-loaf pans- Divide batter in two & put half in each loaf pan that has been prepared with cooking oil.
- Cooking oil (pam spray, crisco, etc.) is used to ensure that your cornbread won’t stick!
-Place 13×9 or the 2-loaves into the preheated oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick that’s inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Serve warm with butter, crumbled into some chili, or do like my Grandpa does & pour some milk on it to eat it for a snack! There are many possibilities! I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as we do!
