Homemade Corn Bread & Jalapeno Corn Bread


  • cooking spray (to grease baking dish)
  • 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1-2 16oz jars sliced jalapenos (optional)
  • Heat the oven to 400°F. Spray the bottom and sides of an 9×11 inch pan with cooking spray.
  • Melt butter in microwave.
  • In a large bowl, beat the melted butter, milk and egg with a fork or whisk until well mixed.
  • In a separate bowl, mix cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add to butter/milk/egg mixture and stir just until the flour is moistened (batter will be lumpy).
  • If you are adding jalapenos, cut them up into smaller pieces and add now. I usually use about 1 1/2 jars hot jalapeno. Fold into batter.
  • Pour batter into the pan; use a rubber spatula to scrape batter from bowl. Spread batter evenly in pan and smooth top of batter.
  • Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Can be served warm or cool.
