1 1/2 Cups Braum's Milk

My husband makes his cornbread in a 10 inch cast iron skillet.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. My husband puts his oil into the skillet and places the skillet in the oven to heat the skillet and the oil. Put corn meal in a mixing bowl. Add milk, egg, corn, jalapeno peppers. Stir only enough to throughly mix ingredients. Carefully remove hot skillet from the oven and pour hot oil in cornbread mixture. Stir only to mix oil in other ingredients. Pour cornbread mixture into hot skillet and return to oven. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes.
My husband placed jalapeno slices on top of his cornbread before baking to enhance his presentation. You can also add a cup of grated cheese to this recipe or chopped onions or both depending on what you have on hand or what you like to eat. My husband makes a variety of different ingredient cornbreads. Sometimes he uses cream corn, but it really makes it sweet.I have to tell you this cornbread was so good! Hot from the oven with a little butter....so sorry you can only see it and not have a big slice of your own.
