Jalapeño-Cheddar Corn Bread

Jalapeño-Cheddar Corn Bread

If you want a little less heat in your corn bread, simply decrease the amount of pickled jalapeño peppers or use 2 tablespoons of fresh jalapeño peppers instead.

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)


  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 none large eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons minced pickled jalapeño peppers
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) reduced-fat shredded sharp Cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 425°.

Place oil in 9-inch cast-iron skillet; place pan in oven for 5 minutes.

While pan heats in oven, lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cornmeal, and next 3 ingredients. Combine eggs and buttermilk, stirring with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Stir in jalapeño peppers and cheese. Pour batter into preheated pan.

Bake at 425° for 20 to 23 minutes or until golden. Cut into 12 wedges.
