Jalapeno Cheddar Hot Honey Cornbread

What goes better with a nice bowl of chili than some warm homemade cornbread! This savory cornbread is sure to please your palate.



· 1 ¼ cup Yellow Cornmeal

· ¾ cup All-Purpose Flour

· ¾ tsp Baking Soda

· ¾ tsp Kosher Salt

· ¼ cup Brown Sugar

· ¼ cup Sugar

· 1 Jalapeno, seeded and chopped (can add more for extra heat!)

· 1 ½ cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided

· ¼ cup Butter, melted

· ¼ cup Hot Honey (can sub regular honey), extra for drizzle

· 1 cup Buttermilk

· 2 large eggs


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium size bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, baking soda, salt and both sugars, chopped jalapenos with 1 ¼ cup of the shredded cheddar cheese and mix well. Set aside.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together honey, melted butter, buttermilk and eggs.

3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until combined.

4. Pour into a greased 8” x 8” baking dish or cast iron (my preference). Top with ¼ cup of shredded cheese and drizzle with hot honey.

5. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing and ENJOY!


· If cornbread starts to get brown quickly, can use tin foil to loosely cover and continue to bake.

I've been using this rub for several years and no matter how many other recipes I try, I keep coming back to this one. It works very well on ribs, chicken, pork chops, you name it! BBQ RUB INGREDIENTS
