Tasty Tuesday

           Since Fall offically begins in 2 days, of course I'm sharing another pumpkin recipe! Have you ever had pumpkin cornbread? Neither had I till a recipe found me recently, and let me tell you, those can be the best kinds, no hunting involved!  I've got my family spoiled with my cornbread, you see and this is a secret too, I add a spoon or two of sugar to my recipe, making it johnny cake in all reality, and more like a cake too but everyone loves it this way. Recently I made some jalapeno cornbread and they knew something was missing so I had to come clean. But please use my secret just once and you'll see why it's our favorite cornbread.

        Back to this post, I got a email from one of the cooking sites I belong too and there it was, a pretty orange cornbread with a hint of pumpkin and sweet sugar, so I knew it would be good.  And it was, with a bowl of ham and beans.........yumo!

Pumpkin Cornbread

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 cup canned unsweetened pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, stir flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and make a well in the center. In a small bowl, stir together the eggs, pumpkin, sugar, and oil.
  3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg mixture. Stir just until blended; do not over mix.  Divide the batter evenly among prepared muffin tin cups.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

     I always spread butter top while still warm so it melts all over, did I say yumo yet?  In fact, I'll be making ham and beans on the first day of fall to celebrate and I just may have to make another batch of this too!  It keeps well so that's always a plus in our house.
