Jalapeño Corn Bread

When the garden is winding down for the Fall, I throw everything that is left into the roaster and cook up a big batch of chili.  I would put it in quart sized freezer bags and send it home with my daughter.  She had long days is medical school.  A home cooked meal at her fingertips was appreciated after a long day. I am sure many memories were made inviting a friend over to study and enjoy a home cooked meal.  This corn bread is a perfect addition to a hot bowl of chili.  Try the maple version with a pork roast or brunch and tea.

Pour in desired baking pan. Bake until golden brown. Top will crack a bit and a toothpick inserted will come out clean. Shaped pans took about 20 minutes. Mini loaf pans had 2 cups of batter and took 30 minutes.

For a sweeter version:

Substitute maple syrup for honey and omit jalapenos. When the loaves came out of the oven,

I brushed them with an additional tablespoon of maple syrup. Perfect side for a pork roast or with tea.
