  • 10 ounces Sharp Cheddar Cheese - shredded

Instructions

Use some butter to grease a 9 x 13 x 2 baking pan and set it aside.

Mix all the dry ingredients flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into one bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix all the wet ingredients, buttermilk, eggs, and butter, using a whisk.

Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently mix them to create a batter.

Once the batter is smooth, add the 3/4s of cheese, scallions, and minced Jalapeño peppers, then fold them into the batter, being careful not to over mix.

Bake for 30-30 min until it passes the toothpick test, then remove from the oven and allow the cornbread to cool until warm to the touch, then serve and enjoy.
