My homemade cornbread never turns out right. It usually has a crumbly texture and is gritty tasting. Most cornbread mixes are not to my liking either. Several years ago I saw a recipe where someone added creamed corn to the mix. I tried it and have made it that way ever since. It is delicious, moist and doesn't crumble and fall apart. I make it both plain and with jalapinos and sometimes with cheddar cheese on top. Any way is yummy. Enjoy!
1Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9 inch springform pan or cake pan or cast iron skillet with Pam.(I have made it in all of these kinds of pans, and prefer the springform pan as it is easier to cut in wedges)
2In medium sized bowl, whisk together eggs, butter or oil, creamed corn. Add the muffin mix and stir until incorporated. Don't overmix. If adding jalapinos do so now. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. If topping with cheddar cheese, do this the last 10 minutes of baking. Remove from oven and let set for 10 minutes. Cut into wedges. Serve warm with butter. Enjoy with your favorite soup, chili or beans..or anytime you are craving some good cornbread.
