Cheddar cheese and cayenne pepper Cornbread:
Whilst on a trip to New York we ate out at a cafe that served Cornbread and we just had to try it as it looked so good. It tasted amazing. The one we tried was sweet but I know it's mostly served as a savoury in the South.
After lots of umming and aaahing I decided to have a go at making some, so I decided to make a savoury cornbread with added cheddar cheese and cayenne pepper. It was delicious :)
2 cups of cornmeal flour
1/2 cup of plain flour
pinch of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
half a cup of milk
Grated cheddar cheese (as needed)
Cayenne pepper to taste
oil for greasing.
Method and Preparation:
Pre heat your oven to 180 (350)
In a large mixing bowl, add the flours,salt and baking powder and mix well.
Now whisk in 2 eggs and add the the milk little at a time to form a thick-ish batter ( not too thick ,not too thin)
Now add the grated cheese and cayenne pepper as needed .
Grease your tin that you will be pouring the mixture in and carefully pour in the batter.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes ( please check as oven temps vary)
Enjoy alone or with a hearty stew or soup :)
I hope you try this recipe, it's quick and easy and very tasty .
