Cheese and Cornbread or Dumplings

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 25 mins

This corn bread goes well with chicken dishes or meat. If there are any left overs wrap well and pop into your freezer. I like the touch of jalapenos but that is up to personal taste

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine corn meal, flour, baking powder, sugar& onion salt, mix well.
  2. Stir in the cheddar.
  3. In another bowl whisk together milk, yogurt& egg& jalapeno (if using).
  4. Combine the egg mixture with the dry ingredients, stir until dry ingredients are just moistened (the batter should be lumpy).

Bergy, this cornbread is absolutely YUMMY!!! I luv the addition of cheese and corn kernels, they make the bread extra moist and tasty. As I didnt have a jalapeno in the house and all the shops were closed, I subbed a green bell pepper for it, which was a nice addition (though definitely not spicy lol). THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us. We all enjoyed it a lot and will make it again!
