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.

    I love cornbread and I make it about once a month (at least). I have a small cast iron skillet that would work well here. Sounds great - thanks!
