Excellent cornbread. The extra moisture from the creamed corn combined with the cheese and peppers make this a wonderful accompaniment to a summer meal (or anytime for that matter). I served it with a smoked pork roast, crispy potato wedges, and 3-bean salad. The only change I made to the recipe was using fresh jalapenos from my garden. I did saute them briefly in some olive oil to soften them up a bid. Since I had both green and red ones, I used one of each and the contrast in the bread made it all that more appealing. Thanks, Auntie Mags, for a great recipe.
