Tips and tricks for this cornbread…

  • This Mexican Cornbread will have a distinct bottom layer that is moister than the rest of the bread. The moisture from the oil and creamed corn in this bread will settle at the bottom and form a super moist layer
  • Checking for doneness – insert a toothpick close to the middle of the dish. The toothpick should come out mostly clean with the exception of the moist layer at the bottom
  • Jalapenos get their heat from the seeds and the veins. Leave those in for an extra kick, or devein it and remove seeds for a mild flavor
  • Store cornbread in a closed container and in the refrigerator for up to 1 week
