  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 14.5 ounces creamed corn 1 can
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup chopped jalapeno peppers + sliced jalapenos for topping
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or use a spicy pepperjack for extra heat


  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Whisk together the milk, melted butter, eggs and creamed corn together in a small bowl.
  • In a larger bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and black pepper.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir together.
  • Stir in the chopped jalapenos and shredded cheese.
  • Pour the batter mixture into a lightly oiled baking dish and bake for 25-35 minutes, or until the cornbread sets and an inserted toothpick comes out dry in the center.
  • Cool slightly, slice and serve.



Makes 9 pieces of cornbread.
NOTE: I like to add extra jalapeno slices to the tops of the batter before baking for an extra decorative touch.
I love to drizzle mine with honey!
