Irish Spicy Cornbread

Recipe by  

"A nice mildly spicy cornbread recipe. Great with chili. You may want to adjust the amount of cayenne and hot sauce to taste. For this recipe I use cast iron pans that have 5 small corn cob shapes in them, but any cast iron frying pan will do."

Too much flour - not enough corn meal.

wow this was fantastic!! i cut down on the spices by half (for the kids) and baked it in a pyrex pan. Place pan in the oven with butter to warm and melt(not to long though, don't want the butter to burn) pulled the dish out spread the butter around hot pan, poured in batter and baked. Quick, easy, delicious!!

This was soooo good. Of course, I had to play around a little, and melted butter in the skillet instead of cooking spray. Also added a half can of creamed corn and cut back a little on the milk to compensate. Everyone loved it.

This turned out great. I didn't have cayenne pepper so instead I used ancho and chipotle pepper. For the hot pepper sauce I used about two teaspoons tabasco sauce and five teaspoons of a green chile salsa. This recipe would be great served with chili.

This cornbread is delicious and not as spicy as I thought it would be. It is very light and turns a golden brown. This will be my cornbread recipe from here on out.
