Friday Home: Spring Onion and Red Chilli Cornbread

Can you remember that I got the book Home Cooking Made Easy by Lorraine Pascale for Christmas? Well a few weeks ago it was a cold and rainy Sunday afternoon, and I decided to do some cooking. I had wanted to try some recipes from this book for ages and I just hadn't got round to it so today was the day. After browsing I decided to make this Spring Onion and Chili Cornbread.  Here is how I got on...

Now there are quite a lot of ingredients in this recipe but don't be put off as its super easy!!


Oil for Oiling
220g fine cornmeal or polenta
90g plain flour
1 tsp soft light brown sugar
2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 egg
200g natural yoghurt
300ml milk
1 tsp salt
75g tinned drained sweetcorn
30g butter/olive oil
3-4 Chillies finely chopped
1 bunch of spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced
Salt and Pepper

Preheat the oven to 220C (225F/Gas Mark ) and oil the pan or tin. If using a spring form tin then line the bottom with baking parchment.

Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. (the mix will look very slopping and not that appealing but I promise it will come good),

Then place the mixture into the pan or tin. Bake in the oven for about 30mins or until the bread looks cooked and is no longer wet.

Once cooked, remove the bread from the oven, leave to cool, then cut into chunks and eat with a hearty soup!

Look how well it turned out!! It was quite spicy so maybe use less chillies if spice isn't your bag but it was very tasty and quick to make too. I'll definitely be making it again!!
