Unconventional Corn bread using Cream style corn


Unconventional Cornbread.

I like to have a well-stocked pantry.  Cans of corn, is something I have on hand, well, it was right there, is what I said last week, when we were making a quick dish of noodles with sweet red and green pepper strips. Oh, let’s move on.

This cornbread is rich with cheese and bacon, and flavored with onion and green pepper. A bit of cream style corn gives it its moistness..

3 strips of bacon

1/1/2 cups yellow cornmeal

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1 tsp salt

2 eggs

1 1/4 cups milk

3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup canned cream style corn

1 small onion finely minced

2 Tablespoons finely minced green bell pepper.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lighly oil a 10 inch round cake pan and place in oven to heat.  Fry the bacon until very crisp, drain on absorbant paper ( paper towls), and crumble finely.   Meanwhile , prepare the batter, In a medium bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt.  In another mixer bowl, beat the eggs slightly, and add the remaining ingredients and mix.  By hand stir in the dry ingredients , just until blended.  Por the batter into the hot pan. Bake 30 minutes.  Cut into 8 wedges and serve immediately with butter.
