Broccolified Cornbread

Recipe by  

"Quick and easy cornbread from scratch with fresh broccoli and low fat cottage cheese. This cornbread, though not cake-like and sweet like many recipes, is still moist and is quite savory. Since many people don't own an iron skillet, this recipe uses a cake pan instead."

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch cake pan.
  2. Bring an inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Place broccoli in pan and cover. Steam until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, and rinse with cold water until cold; squeeze out excess water.
  3. Combine melted butter, cottage cheese, egg, milk, and steamed broccoli in a large bowl. In a separate large bowl, stir together the cornmeal, baking soda, and salt. Make a depression in the middle of the dry ingredients; spoon in broccoli mixture. Stir until well combined. Spoon into prepared pan.
  4. Bake until a knife inserted into the center of the pan comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Loosen edges of cooked cornbread with a knife. Cut into wedges to serve.

I was skeptical to be the first to try this recipe, but it came out really well! I used this recipe as a topping for veggie cornbread casserole to REALLY get the veggies in there, and it was a big hit! I used the diced frozen broccoli for ease, and a ts of b.power bc I didn't have soda but it rose fine anyway. I think I might add some garlic to it next time, to boost the flavors. This recipe's a keeper, thanks!!

This was barely okay. It stuck to the pan, and was kind of bland. It did taste very broccoli-ish, so it fills the veggie requirements, and it did not have too much oil in it, so it was healthier than most cornbreads. I do not think I will make it again, though.

I might have used a different type of cormeal, but this recipe didn't turn out like I expected. It lacks of flavor and consistency. I might have used more milk and some cheese, I don't know. Thanks anyways!!

I substiuted Jiffy mix for the cornmeal. Had to add a little more milk but they came out great.

We did not care for this at all. Mine came out dry and salty with little flavor. I may attempt this again to see if I did anything wrong--I follow the recipe exactly. But will likely look for a different recipe.
