I have not tried this recipe. I got it from The chef @ ww recipes. com. Cornbread is usually associated with the Southeastern United States, but in California they make it their own by spicing it up and adding some cheese.

- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 8 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
- 15 ounces cream-style corn
- 8 ounces green chili peppers, drained and diced
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup grated monterey jack cheese or 1⁄2 cup cheddar cheese
- Combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and sugar in a bowl. In a.
- separate bowl cream the eggs and butter until light and fluffy. Add.
- the corn, chili peppers, milk, and cheese and stir to combine. Add.
- the dry ingredients and stir just enough to mix well. Pour into a.
- greased 8-inch (20 cm) square baking pan and bake in a preheated 350F.
- (180C) oven for 60 to 70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the.
- center comes out clean. Remove from pan and cut into squares.
This was a keeper for me! I am aso from California, and was looking for a recipe that would allow me to use some cheese. I therefore didn't see the other two California Cornbread recipes until later. In looking at the other reviewed recipe, I would definitely agree this one is more "California" than the other one.
