Jalapeno & Cheddar Cornbread

29 May

Morning Everyone! Happy Tuesday!

I hope everyone’s week is going well! Mine is going along slowly. Last week sped by because it was a short week but this week is going to drag on, I can already tell.

Last night I whipped up a yummy dinner, surprisingly as always. Then we watched Sunday’s episode of Girls that we had PVR’d. Let me just say….UM yes! I love this show more and more with every episode. It still shocks me, but in a good way.

Seriously, did anyone else watch the newest episode? I am dying to talk to someone about this show, but none of my friends are watching it! HBO is not a normal channel in Canada so most people don’t have it. We have to order it extra with our TV package. $14 a month but soooo freakin’ worth it. Mr. Delish watches Game of Thrones and Spartacus (both are too gory for me) and we both watch Girls.

Geoffrey also had his first night sleeping in our bedroom. We usually leave him in our bathroom overnight because he’s so little and he don’t want him to get hurt or have an accident or anything. Since he was doing well with the litter box, other than the fact he basically has to pole vault into it, we thought we’d try out a night in our room. He did really well, but he likes to share the dogs bed. When we woke up the poor dog was sleeping next to me on the floor and I looked and little Geoffrey was sprawled out on her bed! She must have gotten annoyed with him in the night and decided to get the heck out of there. Looks like we’ll have to get Geoffrey his own little kitty bed!

I also posted this and this on instagram last night and got some requests for the recipe! Of COURSE I’ll give you the recipe, I like to hook you guys up with some good eats, and this is definitely a good eat!

My Mom makes delicious cornbread, she makes it with soups and chili and in my mind it is the perfect cornbread. Its moist on the inside but slightly crisp on the outside and she adds sugar to it so its slightly sweet. I could eat a million pieces but I try to limit myself to about 7. Ha.

The plain Cornbread is great, I’ll tell you below what to do just to make the plain kind. However, last night I felt like something different. I wanted to add a bit of spice, and what better combination than Jalapeno and Cheddar?

It turned out SUPER yummy. The cheese gets all browned and kind of crispy around the edges. Yum!


Even cheesier.

Perfect for dipping in soups and stews or just eating straight out of the pan.

It’s easy and done in less than 30 mins! Make it tonight!

Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread

Makes one 8×8 pan

1 cup flour

3/4 cornmeal

1/4 cup sugar

1 tbsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 egg, beaten

1 cup milk

1/4 cup melted butter (stop here with the ingredients if you just want to make plain cornbread)

3 tbsp liquid honey

1 jalapeno seeded and minced, or leave the seeds in if you like a little spice!

1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar


Preheat your oven to 425 with the rack in the center position. Grease a 8 x 8 baking pan.

Mix together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In a separate bowl mix together the beaten egg, milk and melted butter.

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Pour into your prepared baking pan and if you want to make plain cornbread, stick it in the oven and you’re done. If you want to make the Jalapeno & Cheddar version, continue on.

Drizzle the honey evenly over the top of the cornbread batter in the pan then sprinkle the minced jalapeno over that. Lastly top with the cheddar cheese evenly sprinkled all over the top. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 mins until the top is golden and the cheese is browned slightly. Move to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once cooled, slice into squares and serve!
