Nothing Soothes the sight and taste of freshly baked food coming out of the Oven . I am not a baking person nor do I bake often . But after I started to Blog about my food adventure, my love affair with baking had taken off so effortlessly that I sometimes feel I have been doing this for ages. But the fact is that I am a novice baker and try to learn and understand the science behind the baking and integration of flavours. In order to sharpen my Baking skill I have joined a group of Bakers at Baking partners who every month comes up with a theme on which all bakers has to bake and post their recipe . Though I am always eager to participate every month ,due to some personal reason I could not participate in the November month’s challenge of Skillet Cheese Corn Bread.
For a new bee like me in the world of baking, Cornmeal Bread seems a logical challenge to take up, but the nonavailability of Corn meal and Skillet at home, dampen my spirit a bit. But when I saw my fellow blogger friend Sreelatha’s recipe of cardamom flavored cornbread muffins at http://www.framedrecipes.com/, a ray of hope arises that this recipe can be done without a skillet also. Then a frantic search for Cornmeal ended with a shop who promises to get it for me. I have been waiting to bake this Cornmeal bread for a long time and finally the day came when my house is filled with the beautiful aroma of the freshly baked spinach and cornmeal bread. The whole process of trying this recipe is so satisfying that its worth waiting for all these days.
The original recipe for this month’s baking partner’s challenge has been given by Suja ofKitchen Corner Try It. She has given two recipe one with cheese and jalapenos and other with molasses. While going through the history of Cornbread I came to know that Cornbread is a common bread inUnited Statescuisine, particularly associated with the South and Southwest, as well as being a traditional staple for populations wherewheatflour was more expensive.I have changed the recipe and the ingredients a bit to adopt it to the likes of my family and it’s taste bud. However You can find the original recipe at http://kichencorner.blogspot.in/2015/11/skillet-chile-cheese-cornbread.html.
