Spicy Cheddar Corn Bread

Spicy Cheddar Corn Bread

I just love a good corn bread. Slathered with butter and honey! Oh so good! On today’s menu we have a corn bread with a twist. Cumin & chili powder have spiced it up and the addition of shredded cheddar just takes it over the top!

Spicy Cheddar Corn Bread
1 1/2 cups cornmeal
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
4 tablespoons melted butter
1 1/4 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Heat oven to 350 °F. Place cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cumin & chili powder in a large mixing bowl. Place buttermilk, eggs and melted butter in a second mixing bowl. Add shredded cheddar to buttermilk mixture and stir into cornmeal-flour mixture. Press batter into a greased 8″x 8″ baking dish.

Bake for 35-40 minutes until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Slice into squares and serve. I suggest serving with a dollop of butter and a drizzle of honey. Yum!

  1. I’ve never had cornbread. I’ve read that it was introduced to Ireland during the potato famine of the 1840s. It became associated with bad times and poverty and was scorned when prosperity returned. Ironically, it’s now seen as a foodie speciality.
    I must try this recipe, if only to satisfy my curiosity.

    1. Huh – I did not know that! It’s actually very tasty – especially when served with chili (Friday’s post) or last week’s Cuban Pork roast!! Each wonderful little square soaks up all the juices!! Yummo 😀😀😀

      1. I recommend topping each little square with a dollop of butter and a drizzle of honey – just puts it over the top! Let me know how you like it!! 🙂
