Cornbread with Jalapeno Peppers

Home is where your story begins.

Hello everyone~ I hope you are all having a wonderful week.

For tea this week, I served a cornbread with jalapeno peppers. I love cornbread and I make it two different ways. One is sweet served with maple syrup and the other is a more savoury cornbread which is baked in a skillet. 

I am sharing the savoury cornbread with jalapeno peppers today.

I have tweaked the recipe a bit and I hope you enjoy it. It is wonderful just on its own with butter or served with chili or any other savoury dish.

Skillet Cornbread with Jalapeno Peppers

Heat oven to 450
Melt 2 TBSP butter in a cast iron skillet in the oven then remove from the oven and coat the bottom and sides of the skillet with the butter. Let set while mixing the cornbread ingredients.

Mix together:
1-1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 TBSP sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl

Beat together in a medium bowl with a fork:
2 large eggs
1-3/4 cups buttermilk
Beat in the melted butter from the skillet.

Wash and remove seeds from 2 jalapenos. I used about one heaping TBSP each of green and red, chopped into small pieces but you may add more depending on how hot you like it. Add to the milk mixture.


Add the milk mixture with the peppers to the cornbread mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon just until moist. The batter should be a bit lumpy. 

Pour the mixture into the skillet and bake about 22-25 minutes. Test with a toothpick. It should come out clean. Serve hot and slice in two and spread with butter. 


Thank you for visiting my cottage today and enjoy the rest of your week.

I am sharing this with these wonderful parties:

  1. Hi Sandi, Your cornbread sounds good. I've never had cornbread made with peppers, but I imagine it is really good, knowing what a good cook you are! Hope your week is going well. :)
    Blessings and hugs, Beth

  2. Cant wait to give it a try. I'm thinking Thanksgiving will be the perfect time for this... thank you for sharing with love Janice

  3. Oh yum Sandi! I bet the jalapenos add just the perfect amount of heat. Can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing the recipe with SYC.

  4. This sounds delicious, Sandi! My son that's here with me would love it!

  5. I can almost taste it (and sadly, ex-RAF flyboy cannot stand spices of any kind!)

  6. The cornbread looks delicious Sandi but I likely wouldn't add hot peppers to mine. Neither hubby or I are fond of spicy heat in our food but if I were at your place, I'd certainly want to try a piece.

  7. Sounds delicious, and I love the reminder to wash your hands. I forgot once, and that was not fun! :)

  8. Hi Sandi....I love cornbread but never have made it. thanks for the recipe. Cornbread for some reason really does remind me of comforts of home, and a cozy winter day inside. Hugs and wishes for a beautiful day out there.

  9. Oh, my..... Your cornbread reminds me so much if my Grandmother, whom I miss dearly! Hers wasn't spicy, but she did make the very best and always in a cast iron skillet! Your flowers look beautiful in silver!
