Cheddar and Jalapeno Corn Bread

Last evening we had my dear friend Peggy and her son (Michael's little buddy) over for a chili supper, so of course I had to make some corn bread to go with it. This recipe adds a twist to traditional corn bread recipes. It is very moist and cheesey, packing just a little bit of heat!!!
 What you will need to make this recipe...

2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 2/3 cups milk
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
8oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
4 oz can of Jalapeno peppers, chopped
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Combine the eggs and milk. Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with egg mixture. Add the shredded cheddar and chilies and blend by hand.
Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cut into squares and serve warm.

It looks like old man winter will be back with a vengance later on today and in to tomorrow up here in the northeast. The wind is really starting to whip up out there...here's hoping it's not too bad.


  1. Barbara, I love this kind of cornbread!! It's so good with chili, isn't it?! Yummy-yum! Your recipe sounds really delicious with the butter instead of oil. :) I might have to make a pan soon.

  2. Barbara, That sounds really, really good. Our family loves it with chili. Now I have a hankering for cornbread- xo Diana

  3. This looks so good, I'll think I'll make some this week.

    Thanks for posting!

  4. I make a corn bread similar to this. It starts with a Jiffy Cornbread Mix. You add two eggs, a cup of corn and a cup of pepper jack cheese.
    Put in an 8 x 8 pan and bake the same as your recipe. I never liked cornbread till a friend served this recipe. Now I love it.

  5. I just found your blog thru a friend of mine. I love your style! This recipe sounds like something my family would love and I can't wait to try it. I do have a question about your sofa and chair near your fireplace. Do you mind if I ask what brand they are and what kind of fabric? I am in the market for new living room furniture and I do like that style.

  6. This sounds so good! I'd love it with a big bowl of chili! Thanks for sharing! Hugs, Leena

  7. I so liked your tour of your home. It is so beautiful. I love the childrens rooms. What a wonerful kitchen. I might even want to cook. haha .
