These mini jalapeño cornbreads are the perfect morsel to dunk into chillies, spicy stews or some simple guacamole in front of a Netflix box set binge. Golden and sweet with a manageable amount of spice from the jalapeños, they’re super easy to make thanks to store cupboard ingredients like polenta and a jar of pickled peppers.
The Baxters new Deli Toppers range is proving to be a bit of a hit in our house, and this is the third recipe I’ve created using them. They’re fantastic corner-cutters for giving dishes a super quick street food makeover.
The little jar of green and red jalapeños are perfect for giving a quick fiery kick to a dish of cheesy nachos, revving up a bowl of salsa or how about mixing them up with some grated mature cheddar and scattering on some french bread and grilling for spicy cheese on toast?!
Now I’ve got your appetites fired up, here’s the recipe for my mini cornbreads…
Mini Jalapeño Cornbreads
Prep time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 15 mins
200g dry polenta
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarb
1/2 jar pickled Baxters Jalapeño peppers, drained and roughly chopped
- Grease 2 x 4 hole Yorkshire pudding tins and pre-heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Put all the ingredients apart from the butter into a bowl and beat together.
- Melt the butter and then mix into the cornbread batter until smooth. Pour into the bowl and mix until smooth – it will have a bubbly quality to it!
- Divide equally between the 8 holes of the Yorkshire pudding tins.
- Pop both trays in the oven to bake for 10-15 minutes until golden and firm in the middle. Once cooled a little, ease out by using a pallet knife to run around the edges of each cornbread and then serve immediately with a good scattering of chopped coriander, and extra jalapeños should you be in a spicy mood!
