Sweet & Spicy Cornbread

I felt compelled to make a sweet cornbread today. I found a recipe, got out all the ingredients, and began my work! I then noticed that I could definitely throw in some pepper jack cheese and jalapenos that would make for a delicious spicy cornbread.

What to do but make a sweet AND spicy cornbread! I hoped for the best and threw in the cheese and pepper.


1 cup wheat flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick butter
1/4 cup honey
dash of cinnamon
1/4 cup cheese
1/4 cup chopped jalapenos

Set oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Melt butter in saucepan until liquid.While the butter is cooling, combine the dry ingredients in one bowl, the wet in another bowl (don’t add cheese or jalapenos yet). Mix the butter into the wet mixing bowl. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix. Now stir in the cheese and jalapenos, being careful not to stir too much. Poor into a greased tin and bake until toothpick comes out clean, about 30-40 minutes*.

* I actually lost track of how long I baked this, but I believe it was 30-40 minutes.
