While it’s chilly here in Texas, you better believe that I’m taking FULL advantage of it. Which is why tonight I’m making a special sort of soup tonight and this awesome Farmers’ Market Cornbread to go along with it!
I based this cornbread off of my Baked Hush Puppies, which made use of a very clever and quick hack for making cornbread things. It’s basically mixing a self-rising cornmeal, creamed corn, and just few other things together to make a one bowl easy-peasy cornbread.
To make this a Farmer’s Market Cornbread, I added in - you guessed it - things you’ll find at almost any local farmers’ market. Including cherry tomatoes, jalapeño, onion, and cheese! Because no cornbread is complete without some cheese. Other than that, it’s straight up cornbread in the quick and easy way.
I have to admit, when my mother was here and saw me making this cornbread today she thought I was a bit insane for putting tomatoes on it, but I promise you that it’s delicious and you will love it - just like she did.
Just like any good cornbread, this one is perfect for soaking up the juices of any chili, stew, or soup! It’s dense and rich and absorbs all that goodness that you want and need out of your bowl. Yep, it’s a vehicle straight to the mouth!
