Double Corn Cornbread

From Cook’s Country

If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you can use a 9-inch cake pan. Instead of heating on the stovetop, please oiled pan in oven for 5 minutes before adding the batter.

1 c cornmeal

1 c all-purpose flour

2 tbsp sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp salt

1 c frozen corn, thawed

1 c sour cream

2 large eggs

1/2 tsp hot sauce

4 tbsp butter, melted

2 tsp vegetable oil

1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Whisk cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl. Pulse corn, sour cream, eggs, and hot sauce in food processor until corn is coarsely chopped and mixture is combined. Fold corn mixture into cornmeal mixture, then stir in melted butter.

2. Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until just beginning to smoke. Take skillet off heat; quickly add batter and place skillet in oven. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool cornbread in skillet on wire rack for 20 minutes. Serve warm.

    A fairly good cornbread recipe, It didn’t rise much from when first spooned into the pan I found it a little sweet but not overpowering like a cake,
    Next time I would reduce the sugar to 1t. The corn would be better if just mixed into the liquid instead of being processed. To me it has a crumb close to cake, so maybe a little more cornmeal and a little less flour. I’ll try 1/4 cup difference both ways next couple times. It makes a cornbread that is only about 1″ high in a 10″ cast iron pan. So I’d suggest doubling it or using an 8″ pan to get more height, I like to be able to cut it in half and put butter on both sides.
    25 minutes is way too long to cook this, I took mine out at 20 minutes and should have done so at 18 min. If the bottom crust if brown enough for you when taken out, I’d not leave it in the pan for 25 min longer
    It would continue cooking in the very hot cast iron pan and be burnt,
    I took mine out of the pan soon as
    it came out of the oven, It slid right out of the pan without sticking
    or coming apart onto a wire rack
