Recipe by paphlovian

This is my own, very different, version of the "Easy Corn Bread" recipe off a canister of Quaker corn meal. I have included honey instead of sugar, but added two eggs to help it rise (and add more protein!). The jalepeno peppers add zing. I used just one pepper, but wish I added more. The lentils add texture, as well as protein and fiber for a more wholesome snack, breakfast, or compliment to a meal.
