Captain Crunch Cornbread

Looking for a side dish that will sure get some attention; this is it. From deep in my southern roots of North Carolina comes this family favorite. We start with the basics of cornbread from scratch and at least move it into the 20th. Century. Instead of using stone ground cornmeal (what are we.... animals?) I chose to use Cornbread Meal Mix instead of instant cornbread. The difference is that the cornmeal mix already has the flour, salt and baking powder already mixed in.


Follow the directions on the package and add in one finely sliced and chopped jalapeño (medium heat) and one egg (per direction). Combine the dry elements (do not add the Capt. Crunch yet) and then add in the two cups of milk. Let that stand for about 5 minutes (you will notice the foam).
*** For sweeter cornbread, you can add 2 tbsp. of honey.



In a glass-baking dish, melt 3 tbsp. of butter. Now the recipe normally calls for greasing the dish with shortening but I like butter better; so make sure that the dish is coated with butter on the sides to prevent sticking. The butter will also give you a slight crust on the bottom when you are done.



Slowly pour in 1/2 of the batter. You do not want to pour in all of the batter because the cereal will try and float on top. After you have 1/2 of the batter poured in, you can layer in the dry cereal. Add one cup evenly to the surface of the batter.


Pour in the remaining batter (making sure to coat all of the cereal).




Place in a preheated 425 oven for about 45 minutes. About half way through the cook, take a look at the surface of the dish. If you notice browning already, cover with foil and continue to bake.



When a toothpick draws out cleanly, remove the dish from the oven and allow to cool.



This dish is somewhat sweet with a slight kick of heat from the jalapeño. It is a perfect paring with pulled pork or any type of Mexican dish. Add a little sour cream for a more savory dish or whipped cream for a unique desert. Bon appetit ... señor!

I personally don't like sweet cornbread with my butterbeans, chili, etc, but I bet that would be great in a glass of buttermilk. Nice job...

totally made this yesterday -

Comments: this is awesome, nice and sweet from the cereal actually. little heat from the cornbread

Questions: I followed the corn meal package instructions then added the jalapeno and cereal as instructed. cooked in an 8 x 8 pyrex pan for 24 minutes at 400. the bottom basically wasn't cooked and the top half was brown and nice. any idea why?

should I have added 2 cups of milk as you said verse the one cup the package said and cooked at 425 for 45 mins?

the taste was killer and people thought it was awesome. now I want to nail the rest. thx in advance?

twitter @therealmikesnow to see pics.
