Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Bread


Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Bread

On very cold snowy days, of which we have had WAY too many for my liking this winter, I like to bake. But let’s face it, there are only so many batches of cookies and cupcakes you can make. What to do? Well, how about throwing some chili on the stove or slow cooker, and whipping up a batch of corn bread? Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Now add some jalapenos and shredded cheddar cheese and you are all set. It is a perfect side to chili or hearty soups, but makes a tasty treat all on it’s own. Not a fan of Jalapenos? No worries, you can use mild green chilies or poblanos for a much lighter flavor.

  4. Gently stir in coconut oil, applesauce, and milk mixture until well combined.
  5. Fold in cheese and minced pepper.
  6. Coat a 9 x 5 inch bread pan with Hot pepper oil and pour batter into pan.
  7. Bake for 60 minutes or until brown on top and bread tests clean with toothpick.
  8. Let cool 30 minutes before serving . ENJOY!
