Best Jalapeno cheese cornbread EVER !

I've made cornbread for years using buttermilk. But, I decided to use some drinkable plain yogurt this time, and WOW ! It was more moist, tender, and flakey than with using the buttermilk.

As I've mentioned, I'm new here, so if this has been posted before, forgive me. :blush:

Here is my new recipe:

1 cup Corn Meal, Yellow
1 cup Flour , All purpose
⅓ cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
1 cup plain yogurt (Organic Valley brand)
2 large Eggs, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons Oil, Vegetable
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1 can (11 oz) Corn, whole kernel, drained
3 tablespoons Jalapenos, chopped, pickled

Stabilize Egg to 375º F. Lightly grease 8-inch-square baking pan. Add 1 tbsp. oil to pan and put on Egg until cornbread batter is ready. This will give a good crust to the bottom.

COMBINE corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Combine yogurt, eggs and oil in medium bowl. Add to corn meal mixture; stir just until combined. Stir in cheese, corn and jalapeños. Pour batter into prepared pan.

BAKE for 30 to 35 minutes or, indirect, until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack. Serve warm.



  • Looks good. Where did you ever get that pan?? Doesn't the cornbread get stuck in those tight corners?

  • Thanks. El Paso is the only really tight corner, but I heat up a tablespoon of Crisco in the pan before putting in the batter, so it doesn't stick. Still, you need to be careful. :)
  • Thanks. Who is Leroy. Is he a Texas egghead? :blink:
  • It always seems to taste better when in the shape of Texas. :laugh:
  • Yes 'um. Cold smoked pork and deer sausage, then heated on the Egg.

    Are you planning on coming to Plano? That would be a righteous cook. I would even cook pintos on the egg to go with the bread.
