Fill your kitchen with the aroma of homemade cornbread! Add a bit of sugar and spice by making this fun twist on the traditional cornbread. Bursting with cranberries and jalapeño, these delicious muffins would make a great addition to any Thanksgiving table.
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 1/2 tsps baking powder
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 3 tbsps minced jalapeño peppers
  • 1 seeded and sliced jalapeño pepper for decorating
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Combine flour, cornbread, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Mix with a fork to break up any clumps.
  3. Add eggs, milk, and butter; stir vigorously.
  4. Add vanilla extract; stir until batter is smooth and well combined.
  5. Fold in cranberries and minced jalapeno peppers.
  6. Scoop batter into the lined muffin cups. Place 1 jalapeno slice on top of each muffin.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until tops are set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.
  8. Cool in the muffin tin for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 10 minutes more.

Enjoy alone or as a side dish with a nice helping of 2020 La Cruz Pinot Noir this Thanksgiving.
