Nothing goes better with chili than cornbread! I used to think I made pretty good corn bread but my daughter gave me her recipe and, hands down, her cornbread recipe is definitely better. It’s easy to make and so good warm from the oven.
Chili and cornbread….it’s what’s for dinner.
Preheat oven to 375
Whisk together until well blended:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter melted…use real butter
2/3 cup sugar
Add and whisk into butter and egg mixture:
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp baking soda
Stir in gently:
1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
Batter should have some lumps.
Put batter in a greased 8×8 pan or large muffin tin (6 muffins). I like to make muffins.
Bake in a preheated oven – 20 minutes for muffins, 30 minutes for 8×8 pan.
Enjoy!! You can add some cubes of cheddar cheese and jalapeños to the middle of each muffin if you’d like. Put half the batter in each cup, add the cheese and chilies, and top with remaining batter.
