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
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!
