    CornBread - Mexican Cornbread Recipes

    This is a rich, moist mexican cornbread recipes with a grainy texture. It's slightly sweet, a little lighter and goes beautifully with hearty soups, chilis, and stews. To spice it up a notch add 2 to 3 finely chopped Serrano Chiles.

  • 1 cup stone-ground yellow or blue cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flour  
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 cup plain yogurt 
  • 1/2 cup milk  
  • 1 tablespoon honey 
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 

    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

    Sift the cornmeal, flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda into a large bowl. Beat together the yogurt, milk, honey, and eggs in another bowl.

    Put the butter in a 9 inch cast iron skillet and place it in the oven for 3 minutes, until the butter melts. Remove from the heat, brush the butter over the sides and bottom of the skillet and pour the remaining melted butter into the yogurt egg mixture. Stir together well, then fold the liquid mixture into the dry mixture. Do not over work the batter. A few lumps are ok.

    Pour the batter into the hot buttered skillet, place it in the oven, and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    Allow the cornbread to cool in the pan or serve it hot.
