About the Recipe
These jalapeno cornbread muffins with cheese feature sharp Cheddar in the mix, and each one has a secret chunk of mozzarella inside, along with some spice from jalapeños -I guess it's time to make cornbread different than Mom did!
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup honey
1 large egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
2 mozzarella sticks, each cut into 6 pieces
12 thin slices jalapeno pepper (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease or line 12 muffin cups.
In a large bowl, mix together cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt; stir in honey, egg, milk, and vegetable oil; blend thoroughly. Stir in shredded sharp Cheddar cheese and chopped jalapeños. Pour or spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.
Add a mozzarella piece to the center of each muffin and one jalapeño slice.
eBake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean, about 14 minutes.
