Sweet N Zesty Cornbread is such a yummy compliment to a nice hearty bowl of ham and beans or Hearty Cornfed Chili! It’s also quite delicious fresh from the oven spread with a thin layer of….you guessed it!!! REAL BUTTER!! 🙂
Fall is a great time of year for those comfort foods that may have been a little heavy for warmer weather. Sweet N Zesty Cornbread goes well with just about any type of soup or stew. Who doesn’t love the smell of fresh cornbread baking in the oven?
Adding shredded cheddar cheese really adds a delightful richness to this wonderfully comforting recipe. And the jalapenos? Well, not only do they add flavor, but also give Sweet N Zesty Cornbread a zing and a kick. As a result, that’s sure to leave fans of southwest cuisine wanting MORE!
My husband, Dan, who is NOT a fan of cornbread anything, LOVES Sweet N Zesty Cornbread! And that’s going some, for sure! He’s actually requested that I make it, too!
Another reason that I love this recipe so much is that it’s a breeze to make. Just mix it together and bake it for just under an hour! And while the Sweet N Zesty Cornbread is baking, there’s time to put the main course together! Because it’s got a delightful kick of it’s own, Spicy Chicken Chili would also go well with Sweet N Zesty Cornbread! MMmmm Hhhmmmm YUMMO!!!
First, start with adding your dry ingredients (except sugar) to a mixing bowl and whisk together briefly….
Then, in another bowl, combine the sugar, melted butter and eggs together….
Then whisk in the buttermilk…..
Bring the dry ingredients together with the buttermilk & egg mixture….
Whisk together until just moistened….
Now it’s time to add the jalapenos and half of the cheese! Stir until just combined. Then pour into a greased 9″x 13″ baking pan, and place in a preheated oven.
And ENJOY! Would love to get your feedback! Please feel free to leave your recipe related comments!! Have a great day!! Lisa 🙂
