I took the best parts of a few different cornbread recipes, and this is the result. Wonderful and moist, it's a great complement to any chili or stew (such as my recipe for Green Chile Pork Stew). Sorry, not for the calorie counters among us (unless you gather a group and cut it into small slivers to serve).
- 1 cup melted butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 (15 ounce) can cream-style corn
- 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies
- 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese (may use Monterey Jack or sharp cheddar instead)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
- Lightly grease a 12-inch cast iron skillet (a 9x13-inch baking dish works too, but you won't get the same crust).
- In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar together.
- Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.
- Mix in corn, chilies and cheese.
- In a separate bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt.
- Add flour mixture to cheese mixture, taking care not to overmix (overmixing makes for tougher cornbread).
- The batter doesn't have to be totally smooth.
- Pour batter into greased pan, and bake in preheated oven for about 1 hour, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
- Serve warm for best crust.
This was very moist and cake like and sweet, not like any Southern cornbread I've made but I liked this. Different for us. I did cut back on the sugar to 3/4 cups and would probably go down to 1/2 cup just for personal preferences. Served this along side a big bowl of pinto beans. :) Made for Fall PAC 2011
Delicious cornbread -- a great addition to my pinto beans and the rest of my dinner. Easy to make and nice and moist.
Good cornbread. This was simple to make and very flavorful. I used a smaller skillet and then used the rest of the batter for some muffins which worked out perfectly. Thanks for sharing, MG. Made for Culinary Quest 2.
