Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1-1/2 cups shredded reduced-fat Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, divided

    "Yum! I admit I didn't follow this exactly since I only had a box of corn muffin mix rather than corn meal. I added just under a cup of flour to it and had to bake it 10 more minutes, but it turned out beautifully! I am done with gritty dry cornbread. I love the actual niblets of corn inside."

    "Too dense and heavy for my taste. I have much better corn bread recipes."

    "It says 9 servings; I'd say at least 12. This was okay but I doubt I will make it again; we will stick with regular cornbread, no corn or cheese."

    "Unexpectedly yummy! I don't usually use cheese or corn in corn bread. The kids LOVED it! Love using flaxseed, too. Very easy. Make with the Quinoa turkey chili - a great cool night dinner for sure!"
