Ingredients

  • 1.5c AP Flour

  • 1/2c Corn Meal

  • 2T Sugar

  • 1T Baking Powder

  • 1t Kosher Salt

  • 1c Milk

  • 2 Eggs, beaten

  • 1 Stick butter, softened

  • 1/2 Can Creamed Corn

  • 1-2 Cups Sharp Cheddar

  • 1/4c Scallions, finely chopped

Directions

  • In a bowl mix together the dry ingredients well. 
  • In another bowl mix all the remaining ingredients reserving some cheddar and scallions to top the bread with.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir only until just combined.
  •  Be careful to not overmix! Once everything has come together let it rest on the counter for 20 minutes. 
  •  While it rests preheat the oven to 350° and butter the inside of a 12” cast iron skillet, (9×13” pan will work too,) make sure it’s all covered so you do not get any sticking!
  • Add your batter to the pan and smooth out the top, add a little cheddar for some additional color. 
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick pushed into the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool and garnish with some fresh scallions.
