You can omit the jalapeno and or cheese. They have a nice kick to them. I am removing Trans fats from my recipes for better health. This originally had shortening and now replaced with a healthier choice of oil.
- Mix corn meal, flour sugar, baking powder and salt.
- Cut in oil till crumbly.
- Mix in jalapeno and cheese.
- Mix in egg and milk till just blended do not over mix.
- Pour batter into a greased hot cast iron pan.
- Bake in a preheated oven 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
