15th Annual National Cornbread Cook-Off

MARTHA WHITE® AND LODGE® CAST IRON IN SEARCH OF
 NATION’S BEST CORNBREAD RECIPES
                                                     http://www.lodgemfg.com/cbcookoff.asp
 It might be from growing up country, it might be my age, it might be 'cause I live in the South, But does this  sound like a good time or what. The Cook-Off grand champion will win the coveted cast iron skillet crown and receive a $5,000 cash. Pretty good pay-out for one corn bread recipe. Check out their website for all the rules and requirements. And good Luck.

The Original Idea for this Post was my Jalapeno Corn Bread Recipe, Though not award winning by no means and I am almost ashamed to post it here now, It is very good and has been requested on numerous occasions.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Martha White Cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the corn meal,flour,sugar,baking powder ,salt,soda and shortening. loosely combine these ingredients before adding in the eggs and buttermilk, stir this until moistened. Stir in jalapenos. Pour into a greased 9-in.cast iron pan.
  2. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-22 minute.
  3. Serve this with any southern or tex-mex meal.
