How to make it
- Trick to any good homemade corn bread is not to over beat the batter just like when you make super fluffy muffins from scratch.
- Do this easy recipe by hand, and mix just until the ingredients are moistened. And make sure you put your batter in a preheated oven!
- The added crushed red pepper and freshly cracked pepper simply add some complexity and do not necessarily add any spiciness to the bread.
- ****ok here we go...
- Measure all dry ingredients and put into bowl.
- Shuck corn and put on it end, with a knife, carefully scrape off kernels and place all kernels into bowl with dry ingredients and any of the 'milk' from slicing of the kernels off of the ear of corn.
- Add milk and melted butter to dry mixture and stir till just combined.
- Add egg and red chili flakes and stir.
- Let batter sit on counter for at least five minutes, this will allow the baking powder and egg to 'work'.
- Pour batter into your greased pan and sprinkle with fresh cracked pepper.
- Put very small dots of butter on top if you wish.
- Put into hot preheated oven and let bake for 35-40 minutes. Using toothpick, check when time is up to ensure batter is baked throughout.
- Serve it up while still warm as your favorite side bread for special occasions.
- This corn bread recipe is super perfect to use as corn bread stuffing as well - so if you have left overs, make large crumbs and put into a baggy and freeze for the next time you wish to make some homemade stuffing/dressing.
