My Secret Cornbread Recipe.

Ahhhh #&#^#%! Here we go again. Back to being incarcerated in our own homes. Back to being super close with each other and cooking all day.


It's funny how most people inbox without even as much as a pleasant greeting and simply message after a particula' post and say, "Recipe"!

Well, first of all, who raised you? Wolves? And secondly I don't share all my recipes with the world. Duhhh! But after the year we've been having, I find it my #socialgastronomy duty to at least give the world tasty cornbread.

This is a bulk recipe that I use that you can scale down if you want....dat's on you.

Mix dry and wet ingredients separately.

Dry Mix

2 lbs yellow corn meal, I use Geechie Boy Mills

2 lbs all-purpose flour

1¼ cups granulated white sugar

4 tablesp salt

3 tablespoon baking pwd

2 tablespoon baking soda

Wet ingredients

2 quarts cold full fat milk

1 quart cold full fat sour cream

2 ½ pounds of corn kernels

3 oz chopped green onions

4 jalapenos, chopped

12 whole eggs , beaten

3 cups melted butter

2 lbs cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon hot sauce I use Tabasco, of course.


Measure each ingredient and combine but keep the wet and dry separate until you are fully ready to bake. Preheat your oven to 400F. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, but do not over mix. Refrigerate 30 minutes

Grease muffin pans and scoop and bake for about 12 minutes or until a toothpick come out clean.

Chef Notes:

  1. This recipe was designed for individual muffins not a loaf style. It works just the same, but I leave out some of the flour so that it doesn't become to "dense".

  2. Adding cheese keeps it moist. Don't eliminate.

  3. Adding melted butter to the cold milk causes the butter to harden into little "chips" that layer the mix. That makes it lighter.

  4. Use fresh corn only aye. No canned stuff.

  5. #bbq and cornbread are lovers. Try adjusting the dry ingredienti to get a lighter or denser cornbread according to your meal.

  6. Try using blue cornmeal or another variety to make this recipe even more special.

Welp! Good luck being shut in with whomever and try to stay safe and social distant, but stay connected.
