    Look to the right and check out the jalapeno cornbread recipe. It was a hit at the Ocala Eggfest

    try both Crimsongator's and Celtic Wolfs. they are a little different from each other. if you want more of a purest corn bread which is what I really like then Pete's is awesome! but I had to admit that Genes at Ocala really wowed me.

    I agree with Mainegg. Both are good but very different.

    Here's some of my attempts to duplicate them:

    Crimsongato's version:



    Celtic Wolf's version:



    And then here's my version of Texas Sweet Potato Cornbread:


    It's important to start with a very hot cast iron skillet.

    I'm not a big corn bread guy, but I did have some of Gene's on Sat. It was really very good.

    Spring chicken hoe do you make the Texas Sweet Potato Cornbread?
  • Spring ChickenSpring Chicken Posts: 9,699
    I just winged it when I made that batch but it turned out good. The sweet potatoes were from a can of candied yams. I used some of the batter to make the "Texas" on top too.

    Meanwhile, I happened on this recipe and it is pretty close to what I did. Only this recipe would probably fill a large skillet. I used a small skillet.

    Sweet Potato Corn Bread
    SUBMITTED BY: Judy Roland
    "This corn bread bakes to a deep golden color with flecks of sweet potato visible. It looks a s good as it tastes."

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 cups cornmeal
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 7 teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 4 egg, beaten
    • 3/4 cup milk
    • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
    • 2 2/3 cups mashed cooked sweet potatoes


    1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, milk, oil and sweet potatoes. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan.

    2. Bake at 425 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cut into squares. Serve warm.

    Let us know how yours turns out.
