Jalapeno corn bread baked in a cast iron skillet.

This is a sweet and spicy corn bread that goes well with chicken or bean dishes. Once you try it, you will be making it all the time.

You Need:

  • 1 cup of yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose or bread flour
  • 3-4 tablespoons sugar depending on how sweet you like your corn bread
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (Morton lite salt works well if you want to reduce the sodium)
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 pat of butter
  • 1 diced jalapeno pepper
  • A 10 inch cast iron skillet or a muffin tin and 6 foil baking cups if you plan to make jalapeno corn muffins.

    Here is What You Do:

    Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

    If you are making a cake of jalapeno corn bread, pour 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and the butter into the cast iron skillet and place the skillet into the oven while you mix the corn bread together.

    If you are making the muffins, place the baking cups into the muffin tin cups.

    1. Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the egg, 3 tablespoons of olive oil and the orange juice.

    2. Do not overbeat the batter. Just mix it until all the lumps are gone. Quickly mix in the diced jalapeno peppers.

    3. Pour the batter into the hot skillet or spoon it into the baking cups and put the bread in the oven.

    4. Bake it until the edges brown and pull away from the sides of the skillet. This takes about 25 minutes.

    5. Let the corn bread cool for a few minutes before cutting it into wedges. If you try to cut it while it is too hot, the bread tends to crumble.

  • For an even quicker spicy corn bread, mix Jiffy corn bread and jalapeno peppers. Bake according to the directions on the box.
