Spicy and flavorful, this is not your typical cornbread.
1 1/2cupsSelf-rising cornmeal
1 1/4 cupsMilk
1/4cup Sharp cheddar cheese,grated
Minced cilantro, optional
Spray Oil, (such as Pam)
cornbread pan, cupcake tin or cake pan
Mince the onion and peppers. Light your galley oven and pre-heat to 350-375 degrees.
Mix all ingredients above (except the Pam) in a large bowl.
Spray muffin pan with cooking spray such as Pam. You can use any kind of muffin pans you'd like...cup cake tins, corn-shaped cornbread molds, or a plain 8 x 8 cake pan.
Pop the oiled pan into the preheated oven and let heat up for 10 minutes. Pull the hot pan out of the oven and place on a trivet or heat resistant cutting board. Pour batter into the molds or pan. Make sure the molds are not filled completely to the top. The batter will rise as it cooks.
Place the pan back in your oven and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned and cornbread pulls away from the sides. If you're using an 8 x 8 cake pan, keep in the oven 5 minutes longer.
Pull from the oven and let rest for 3-5 minutes before carefully lifting from the molds.
