“This is the result of combining a number of my favorite cornbread recipes. The first time I made it, I had people begging for the recipe. The problem was that it didn't exist, as I had just improvised it as I went along. Here's my attempt to put it down in words.”

Original recipe yields 12 servings

Directions

  1. Fry bacon in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate; reserve remaining bacon grease in skillet. Crumble bacon.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place skillet with bacon grease in oven.
  3. Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk milk, buttermilk, butter, and eggs in another bowl; stir milk mixture into flour mixture until just combined. Batter will be slightly lumpy. Fold in Cheddar cheese and jalapeno peppers. Allow batter to rest at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  4. Pour batter into hot skillet and sprinkle with crumbled bacon, gently pressing bacon into batter.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before slicing.

Wonderful.Made as directed except instead of all that bacon fat I partially cooked bacon to remove some fat,drained,discarded fat in pan,diced bacon finely and added to batter. only used 1/2 cup butter and cooked in lightly oiled glass pan.used 1% buttermilk but tho it looks like a lot of changes it wasn't.Just cut some of the fat and salt.also used half salt.

This turned out wonderful. Savory not too sweet. Would be great with a pat of butter. Only thing I did different was to cook in a 13x9 pan....I basted it with margarine and preheated it in the oven. I also mixed the bacon into the batter instead of just on top. Mild spice without the jalapeno seeds.

I made this tonight. It turned out great. I made one change and omitted 1/2 cup of the butter. It didn't need it. Next time I would use serrano chiles for more heat. I only used half the bacon but would use more next time. Hubby loved it!
