Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups cornmeal

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda; set aside. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, corn, buttermilk and oil; stir into the dry ingredients just until blended. Fold in the cheese, peppers and onions.
