And corned we literally were. School today consisted of a midterm which I did not do as well on as the first one, and then making LOADS of cornbread. Man...

This is a pancetta and cheddar cheese cornbread. Didn't try it because I don't eat meat, and well butter just ain't for me.
This is a bacon, cheddar and scallion cornbread, but I'd like to know where the scallions disappeared to.

This is a new one for me - a wet cornbread. The cornmeal is cooked first with some creamed & sweet corn. Interesting. I bet it was good. I hear it's a bread pudding texture.
I tried this little gem "mexican cornbread." It was good, though the cumin was really strong but the cheddar cheese and canned green chilles made it taste really good.
Now, here's my favorite and the one we made (not my favorite because we made it) but because this is the typical cornbread you'll find in the west coast that I am so used to - sweet cornbread. I know it sounds gross to southerners but it is OH SO GOOD!

This cornbread had goat cheese added to it.The we threw in some uncornbread baked goods too like this sour cream muffin, which didn't look too appetizing. Most of the muffins fell apart when you touched it.

Here's a cranberry sour cream scone. The boys took a "dusting" of salt to mean "a handful", so it was more of a pretzel cranberry sour cream scone. yeahhhhh...
And lastely, a double chocolate chip scone. Honestly, seems like we always get double chocolate everything. I mean, I LOVE chocolate - I am female but I don't know...something more interesting maybe?

You must be all "korned out" after this class. But, interesting that there are so many take son cornbread out there:)

Oh, I love cornbread and anything made with corn! Yummy!

Used your Blueberry muffins' recipe last night and everybody cleaned up the plate!!!

It sounds like you have a bunch of idiots in your class. Are you the only one that takes it seriously?
I like my cornbread on the sweet side too.
We have cornbread at the restaurant that I work at, and it is so dry, that it will choke you if you eat it.

An interesting day at the office you'd say?

Sue said...

I find it hard NOT to add sugar to my cornbread, even if I'm adding other stuff to it.

How about adding some white chocolate chips to the chocolae scones? Then you could call it TRIPLE chocolate chip scone.

Bake your cake and eat it too said...

Rosa - I know right. It adds such a nice flavor and better texture.

Mom - which blueberry muffin did you use? I'm glad everyone like it. YAY!

Emilie - you're too funny. I do have the best group though. I have to brag about that. All the younger guys are in culinary so they really don't like this class, probably why they don't do as good of a job.

Cynthia - I'd say a nice & quick day in the office. Always nice since I have an 1 1/2 hour drive home.

Sue - so glad someone agrees with me. see white chocolate would add more excitement to that.
