If it didn't have calories, right now I would eat...
Can I just have one taste of everything? Just one? I promise I can stop at one.1
Dinner was chips and perfect salsa, a couple of delicious margaritas 🍹 and these bad boys! Tacos al carbon. 🌮 😋

That looks delicious..I ate more of these than I planned.
Happy New Year!
What are these, is there something inside?
It's cornbread. What's inside is goodness. It's a tradition in parts of the USA to have cornbread for New Year's. It's supposed to be lucky. Some say the gold color attracts wealth. Black-eyed peas are also lucky - they are said to represent coins. Collard greens - that's the cash money.
Sometimes I add fresh/frozen corn. I used to add cheddar; usually not anymore. This time I kept it simple with some hot chilies. It's not a sweet version; I make mine with the tiniest amount of sugar. I also use very little whet flour, and it's 100% stone ground whole wheat. The rest of the ingredients are a mix of corn meal, polenta, and masa. The liquid is buttermilk. I have two corn stick pans and one "corn bread" pan - all cast iron. This makes for lots of crust on every piece, and I put butter all over the top about five minutes before they are done to crisp them up. Preheat the pans and put some butter in right before adding the batter - it sears and gets crispy. It's one of my most-requested foods, but I only really make it a few times per year. Great for potlucks and, of course, wishing every one a HAPPY NEW YEAR. The batch I took out last night all got eaten pretty quickly. I had some left, and I took them to work... but I decided not to share. Yeah. They're tasty.
I think I'd really like these 🙂
It would be unusual if you didn't. I'm happy to share my recipe. Main thing is CAST IRON. and the corn stick pans are the bomb. I prefer them to the triangles, but... they both make me smile on my face and in my tummy. Not sweet, and with a nice tooth. Not at all like cake or bread, but.... I better go get some more buttermilk......
They sound amazing! I got package mixes to use with my new scone pan, I bet your recipe would come out great in it!
You got it:
My Cornbread Recipe:
Get three cast iron corn stick pans or three cast iron cornbread pans or some combination. A second choice is either steel corn stick pans or a 10-inch cast iron pan. I used to just have ONE corn stick pan and one corn bread pan - I would either make a few sticks in a steel pan or use a small cast-iron pan. LONG time ago I just used cast iron pans before I inherited the cornbread pan and bought stick pans.
Preheat oven to 425F.
Do mix together:
0.5 cups stone ground whole wheat flour
0.5 cups coarse polenta
0.5 cups cornmeal
0.5 cups masa harina
0.125 cups sugar (optional)
0.5 tsp salt
1.5 tsp baking powder
1.0 tsp baking soda
Crushed red chilies (optional)
Be sure to mix this together well.
Do mix together in another bowl:
0.25 cups oil
2 cups cultured buttermilk
Beat with a fork to make an emulsion
Heat cast iron in oven for ten minutes as you mix these two bowls.
Have on hand any optional ingredients you might want to add including:
Some frozen corn kernels
Some shredded cheddar or hard cheese
Some diced fresh hot chilies or crushed dried/smoked chilies
Remove cast iron from oven.
Mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients and mix just enough to get rid of any dry chunks.
Take a stick of butter and rub it inside each corn stick, triangle, or in your pan. It may start to brown if the pans are too hot; work quickly.
Pour about a quarter cup of batter in each compartment. It will probably sizzle and start to rise right away.
Pop into the oven and set the timer to about 22 minutes or so. This is about five or eight minutes less than it actually takes, but you don't want to burn it, and the cast iron will keep cooking it after it comes out of the oven. When it is just barely getting brown, the surface will be dry. Carefully open the oven and rub more butter over the top of each piece making sure some butter runs down the sides and into the cast iron. This is the last thing that crisps it up. Put it back in the oven about five minutes.
Pop out onto cooling racks and TRY to wait at least a few minutes before you devour them. You DO know how the hipster burned the roof of his mouth, right? Ate cornbread before it was cool.
