thank you, sweet readers, for coming back every day

today, i'm bringing you
jalapeño cornbread.
it's so good & spicy...
& i can't wait to make stuffing out of the leftovers!

jalapeño cornbread

1 1/2 c cornmeal
1/2 c all-purpose flour
6 Tbs sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 c sour cream
1/4 c vegetable oil
2 oz. chopped jalapeños

1. preheat oven to 400 f. grease a 9"x9" baking dish.

2. in a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, & baking soda. in another bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, & oil. add to the dry ingredients & stir just until moistened. stir in jalapeños.

3. pour the batter into the prepared pan & bake 22-26 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

4. cut into squares or wedges & serve warm.

the jalapeños i used were from a can...
& they still had the seeds.
i like the extra heat,
but if you're more of a mild person,
i would dice your own jalapeños & leave out the seeds!
