Jalapeno Cornbread (31 Days of Delicious Easy Recipes Day #7)

There’s not a much better smell around here than the aroma of cornbread in the oven.  What’s even better?  Jalapeno cornbread baking in the oven!  I have literally tested dozens of recipes lately because I’ve been trying to create one that is as moist, light, and tasty as the boxed, “Jiffy Cornbread” mix. I’m finally victoriousWoohoo!

Today I’m sharing this easy jalapeno cornbread recipe with you as Day #7 of our 31 Days of Delicious Easy Recipes for Busy Wives.  Of course, you can use this homemade cornbread recipe (that tastes as good as Jiffy mix) without the jalapenos, depending on what you are pairing it with.  For instance, I make a spicy chili that my family loves that brings a little heat.  I would not serve up jalapeno cornbread with that.

I would simply omit the jalapenos from this recipe when you need to.  If your family is like mine, they’ll enjoy an extra kick now and then – so serve it up hot when you need to.  You’ll notice in my recipe that I add two to three Tablespoons of chopped jalapeno AND a tiny bit of jalapeno juice.  This is so that we get a little bit of it in every bite.  You can cut back on both or omit one or the other (especially if you have littles) and it will be OK.

Quick & Easy Jalapeno Cornbread Recipe

I measure 2/3 cups of all purpose flour, 1/2 yellow corn meal, 3 Tablespoons of sugar, 1 Tablespoon baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a bowl and stir.    Then I added one egg, 1/3 cup of milk, and 2 Tablespoons of oil straight into dry mixture and stir lightly til lumps are gone.  It’s optional is to add 2 to 3 Tablespoons of chopped jalapeno (or more if you are brave), and 1 teaspoon of jalapeno juice.  Stir lightly to distribute well and pour into a greased loaf pan.  Place into a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  But don’t overcook!

As soon as I take my loaf pan out of the oven, I always let it cool while a big Tablespoon of butter is melting on it!   Mmm
