So I am going to steal a line from Laurie's blog and say "I just don't like stuff in my cornbread"! I like my cornbread plain, sometimes a little sweet, and I like having the option to put stuff on it if I chose. So this week's Tuesdays with Dorie was a little tough for me. Rebecca, over at Ezra Pound Cake (and I agree with Steph at a whisk and a spoon - it does sound like a rock band!) chose this weeks recipe - Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins. You can check out the recipe on her blog. I don't like chunks of stuff in my cornbread. And I knew that the boys in my life, hubby included would not go for it. So why make them that way if no one would eat them. I decided to vary the recipe a bit and omitted the chopped peppers and jalapenos. I added some of the spice and black pepper to see if I liked it better than the other cornbread recipe I posted earlier this month. I liked the little added heat - made it zippier (is that a word??). I also made it in a skillet instead of muffins. I LOVE the crust the skillet gives. This is my first skillet and I haven't used it enough. So here is a shot of the cornbread - lousy picture. I wish I had some time to sit down and go over the users manual (if I could find it)! Maybe some night time reading in my future once I locate the box it is in.
