Special Diets:
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels thawed
  • 1/2 cup cooked and drained black beans
  • Ingredient Options:
  • Cayenne pepper, sliced jalapeño pepper or chili powder. Feel free to substitute whole wheat pastry flour for the all-purpose flour.
Method

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Oil a 9x9-inch baking dish with canola or olive oil spray and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and sea salt. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs with buttermilk, melted butter, cheese, green onions, corn and black beans. Stir in any optional ingredients desired. Add to dry ingredients, blending until just combined.

Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool slightly before slicing.
