DIRECTIONS

  • Oven rack: lower middle position 450 degrees. Grease 9" round or 8" square pan.
  • Measure 2/3 cup (96 g) cornmeal into medium bowl.
  • Mix remaining cornmeal, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in small bowl; set aside.
  • Pour boiling water all at once into the 2/3 cup (96 g) cornmeal; stir to make a stiff mush. Whisk in buttermilk gradually, breaking up lumps until smooth, then whisk in egg, followed by corn.
  • When oven is preheated, stir dry ingredients into mush until just moistened.
  • Pour hot bacon fat (or melted butter) into the batter and stir to incorporate, then quickly pour 1/2 batter into baking pan. Layer onions & jalapeno, then cheese, top with remaining batter.
  • Bake until golden brown, about 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes, then serve.
