Masa Double Cornbread

By April M AspieApril


Masa - the base of corn tortillas - is basically cornmeal that has been processed in a way that makes the vitamin content more usable. I use the brand Maseca, which my grocery store stocks next to the flour in a similar size bag for about the same price. Using masa in cornbread gives it a softer texture and a bit of tortilla flavor for an interesting twist.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 425. If you’re planning to bake your cornbread in a cast iron pan, put the pat of butter in the pan and put it into the oven to heat up. If you’re using a regular baking pan, grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides.
2
Combine flour, masa, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
3
In a small bowl, combine eggs, milk and oil.
4
Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients all at once, stirring as little as possible to combine well.
5
Gently fold in corn.
6
Pour into prepared pan, smooth top of batter and bake 25 minutes for a square pan, a bit longer for cast iron, until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
