C is for Cornbread!

I am taking part in a Cookery Challenge this year I am going to try 52 new recipes, so it will work out at one each week. Since entering 2010 I have made

Fish Cakes
Lemon Meringe
Scotch Eggs (3 varieties)
Welsh Rarebit Muffins
and Cornbread!


There is no doubt about it, my enthusiasm has originated from The Hairy Bikers "Mum Knows Best" programme and Cookbook as I have been rambling on about for the past few weeks.

Last week it was the turn of Texas Cornbread. It was the very first time I had made this and as I was writing about it on Facebook, our good friend, the whirlwind of Lisa Askew replied telling me she was going to Texas the next day! As Lisa is such an amazing woman I told her I was going to dedicate my cornbread after her, so instead of Texas Cornbread it would be known as "The Amazing Lisa Askew Cornbread!" I was so glad I did this because when I tasted the cornbread I found it rather bland. Now Lisa is anything BUT bland so over the next few days I will be experimenting and refining the recipe so like Lisa it is spicy, fruity and lively!

  12. This looks good, but the scotch egg below has me mesmerized. Please email it in preheated 3D, if that's not too much to ask. It looks so perfect.

  13. I tried making cornbread once, too, and I also found it bland. Maybe I should try again and experiment, but ... I don't much like to cook!

  16. Cornbread has been one of those mysteries to me. It sounds too much like polenta. If you can make it tasty, I will give it a try. :)

  21. I've just got The Hairy Bikers Book, on your recommendation Denise and it's so nostalgic.
    I must confess, that I have cooked many of the recipes but there are many more to try, I rather fancy the cornbread, so will try to get the necessary ingredients.
