Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread

1 c soft butter
1 c sugar
4 eggs
1 can creamed corn
1 jalapeno, sliced
1 c shredded cheddar
1 c flour
1 c yellow cornmeal
4 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
Cream butter and sugar.
Beat in eggs.
Stir in corn, jalapeno, and cheese.
Sift dry ingredients and mix in well.
Greased 9x13 pan.
350 oven...reduce to 300 when you put pan in.
40-50 minutes...toothpick test.
I think the original recipe called for a small can
of chilies, drained. I used 1 whole jalapeno, sliced...
seeds and all, for some nice heat. This can be eliminated
all together if desired.
This recipe was originally my sister, Willows.
It is moist and buttery.
I've made it for years! It's shown here as our favorite
way to eat it....nestled on top a bowl of meaty chili.


  1. Wow! If the baking mood strikes me this weekend (as it did last weekend) I am going to give this a try. All I have to pick up is the cornmeal.....!

  2. Lavinia ~ it's so yummy! I hope you enjoy it, too!

  3. Betsy that cornbread sounds and looks yummy ~ I cannot take the heat though...moist and buttery now that I CAN handle ;)

  4. elk ~ hey, just leave out the jalapeno....I've made it that way before and it's great!

  5. i just love this recipe! It is so down home good!

  6. i was planning on making chili this weekend. i think i'll try this to go along with it. thanks for sharing

  7. I haven't made this in years either! I just got the ingredients to make chili this weekend and I just might have to make the cornbread, too! ;)

  8. Mmmm, perfect. I make a lot of chili, but I didn't like the last cornbread recipe I tried. So I'll try this one for sure. I love all your recipes!

  9. That looks yummy.

    And your sister is Willow, as in Willow that had the cyber ball? No wonder there was so much creativity and imagination there. I was just amazed looking at all the comments on the posts. They were so fun.

  10. Everybody's making chili! It's just that time of year!

    BPG ~ This isn't your typical dry, crumbly cornbread...it's very dense and moist!

  11. Pinkdaisygirl ~ Yes, Willow of Willow Manor is my sister! It was a neat ball, wasn't it! Actually, she has all the creativity and a little trickled down to me! ;)

  12. That looks great. I love Jalo's in anything.

  13. Betsy, your guys must look forward to every meal in your house. My mouth is watering. Yum!

  14. i love cornbread but have never had it with peppers. looks yummy especially on chili!!

  15. Yummy! And I was just wondering what to do with extra jalapenos from the garden! :) Thanks.

  16. Hubby would absolutely love this! You know, you and Willow need to compile a cookbook. I'd certainly buy a copy but it would have to autographed, of course:^P....
