What is in this Corn Bread?

  • With just a few pantry staple ingredients this easy side dish comes together in a flash. We can’t have corn bread without corn meal. Flour, sugar, baking soda and salt are the remaining dry ingredients. Milk, melted butter and egg keep this corn bread moist. One jalapeno (seeds removed) and shredded cheddar cheese adds an extra pop of flavor to your regular corn bread!

Can Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Bread be Froze

Yes! Allow the corn bread to fully cool and then wrap in plastic wrap or place in an air tight container or Ziploc bag. I recommend freezing the bread in a whole piece but you can also freeze individual slices. Lasts in the freezer up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight and then reheat in the oven for 5-10 min at 350F.
