DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
