Jalapeno Buttermilk Corn Bread Recipe
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 cup egg substitute

- 1/2 to 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
- 1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, whisk flour and cornmeal. In another bowl, whisk buttermilk, egg substitute, 2 tablespoons oil, honey and mayonnaise. Pour remaining oil into an 8-in. ovenproof skillet; place skillet in oven 4 minutes.
- 2. Meanwhile, add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture; stir just until moistened. Fold in corn, cheese and peppers.
- 3. Carefully tilt and rotate skillet to coat bottom with oil; add batter. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for 1 cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup. Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

Reviews for Jalapeno Buttermilk Corn Bread
"Nope. Just nope. This may be good, but it's not Southern. At least it's not from my part of the South (Alabama), because my grandmother would roll over in her grave if she had to eat cornbread with honey or sugar in it. It's not cake, it should not be sweet."
"Why is there 261mg of Sodium in this recipe. how can I make it without Sodium. Thanking you, Cynthia [email protected]"
"Delicious. I substituted pickled jalapeno slices for the chopped red pepper and the jalapeno chopped pepper. I baked the bread in an 8 X 8 pan. Thanks, Debi, for this recipe. I'll make this again."
"We love corn bread! Although I used a real egg, and didn't use any of the low-fat ingredients. This was great."
