Corny 'n Spicy Cornbread

I love cornbread but it usually is a little dry for my tastes. To avoid that this recipe is made with 1/3 cup mayonnaise and 2 eggs and baked in a 10" cast iron skillet. Serve w/ your next Southern meal or turkey dinner, or just as a breakfast food. And yes, the recipe calls for FOUR teaspoons of baking powder (not an error)

This was tasty and had a good texture. The additions of corn and jalapenos added color and flavor. Very pretty! Made for Pick A Chef 2014.
