      I thought that this recipe for cornbread was the best tasting cornbread on the planet!! It was so good and rich and moist and light in texture. Yum..., heaven on a plate! I had used regular grated cheddar because that is what I had and I really could not taste the cheese as Ina said would happen if one didn't not use an extra-sharp. I also used only 1 jalapeno because I was a bit nervous, I am "Sweet" cornbread kind of gal and I was afraid the jalapeno would overpower- wrong again! Full jalapenos next time! I think this is a special occasion cornbread because of the calories, but if you really want to impress someone and knock their socks off this is it!

      This cornbread was delicious. Very moist. I used green onions instead of jalapenos with a little chipotle
