Hot Grill on Grill Action’s Sweet Cornbread:
The folks that attended our first event at the Bottomless Glass got to try these. Those that had attended both events did not get to eat them the second time. For this, I have caught a hat full of crap… “Where’s those corn bread muffins maannnnn?” “I can’t believe you didn’t make the muffins this time!” The only way I know how to apologize for not having the muffins at our last event is to provide the recipe so you can make them yourself. I know this doesn’t exactly fill your belly, but it’s gonna have to do. Oh, and by the way, the folks that attended the GOBS dinner at the Bellevue Fire Hall enjoyed them on April 10th. Should have been there if you weren’t!
1 C – Melted Butter
4 Eggs – Beaten
2 C – Whole Milk
1 Can – Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 C – Sugar
2 C – Cornmeal
3 C – Flour
4 tsp – Baking Powder
1 tsp – Salt
1 Can – Corn
In a large bowl mix together wet ingredients including corn. In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients 1 cup at a time to keep batter from clumping.
Muffins in the Oven
Place paper liners into muffin tins or greased muffin tins and spoon mixture into tins until about ¾ full. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake until a toothpick comes out clean – approximately 14 to 16 minutes. Makes 36 muffins.
Immediately after removing from oven sprinkle with sugar.
Dutch Oven – “old school”
Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 12” Dutch oven and spread evenly.
Place lid on dutch oven and bake using 10 lit briquettes on the bottom and 14 lit briquettes on the top for 45 minutes or until cornbread turns golden brown and toothpick comes out clean. To make sure you achieve even cooking rotate the dutch oven 1/3 of a rotation every 15 minutes. You must also rotate the lid 1/3 of a rotation every 15 minutes as well. This will aid in even cooking from both the top and bottom heat sources.
When done “dump” cornbread out of dutch oven onto a cookie to end the cooking process. Flip right side up and sprinkle with sugar.
The following additions can be added to this recipe:
Diced Jalepeno, Diced Red Pepper, Bacon or Cheddar Cheese to name a few. I’m going to try Bacon and Cheddar Cheese for the next side dish competition at one of our upcoming contests. Or should we turn in slaw?
Serve with butter and honey.
