Honey skillet cornbread with jalapeno and blueberries
Well with record breaking heat this summer in my new town, I haven't baked much. The blueberries and jalapeno mixed well together. A simple easy, quick recipe.
Heat oven to 400-410F and heat an eight inch cast iron skillet in it.
1/2 C each cornmeal and flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 Tbs sugar
1 egg beaten
1/2 cup buttermilk or whole milk soured with vinegar
2 Tbs honey
1 jalapeno minced, I will use 2 next time
3/4 cup of blueberries
Combine dry and wet ingredients separately, then combine, stirring the pepper and blues in well. When the oven is up to temp add 2 Tbs to the hot pan and coat all sides well with butter. The excess butter can be added to the mix.
Pour the batter into the buttered CI skillet and back 25 minutes, turning at the half. Now I say 400-410F as I am adjusting from 400F in a convection oven and find I need either a little more temperature or time in my non-convection oven. Very happy with the results today!
Happy baking friends! Ski
