    TheSlyBear's Note:

    A Southern corn bread that even this Yankee can love. I'm originally from New England and wasn't raised on corn bread, and I generally found it dry and tasteless. But now that I'm living in Texas, I tried numerous variations on traditional recipes and developed this one that I like a lot, and that even Southern die-hard corn bread fans rave about.

    Serves: 8



    Units: US | Metric

    • 42.52 g bacon fat
    • 236.59 ml self-rising cornmeal
    • 236.59 ml sour cream
    • 236.59 ml frozen corn
    • 118.29 ml corn oil
    • 3 eggs
    • 2.46 ml salt
    • 113.39 g shredded cheddar cheese
    • 59.14 ml chopped pickled jalapeno pepper


    1. 1
      Place an 8-inch cast iron skillet in the oven and preheat to 400°F Let the pan get good and hot.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl, mix corn meal, sour cream, corn, oil, eggs and salt with a rubber spatula until all ingredients are incorporated.
    3. 3
      Mix in the cheddar and jalapenos.
    4. 4
      Remove the pan from the oven (use a thick mitt, the handle will be very hot) and place the bacon fat in it. Return to oven for a few minutes until fat melts and gets good and hot.
    5. 5
      Remove pan from oven and pour mixture into the center of the pan, letting it spread to the sides.

      I liked this cornbread. We mostly eat sweet-style cornbread here in Chicago, but I much preferred this savory version. The chopped jalapenos were a nice touch. My cooking time was a bit longer, but it still tasted great once it was done. I also used butter instead of bacon fat for greasing the pan, with no bad results. [Made & Reviewed for PAC Fall 2013]
