Corn Bread with Italian Seasoning

Making homemade breads for our breakfast is something that I enjoy these days. Be it quick or yeasted, the pleasure that you get when you peep through the oven door to see that the dough is puffing up just the way it has to puff, browning just the way it has to brown, is a feeling that can never be expressed. I still get excited every time I get a perfect bake and I know many of you are the same.

Bored with all the sweet bakes, I thought of making a savory bread for our breakfast. I took my favorite Pillsbury Cookbook and was browsing through the pages, when I came across the basic cornbread recipe. I remembered that I had some corn kernels too lying in my fridge that needed to be used up and I knew that this was my recipe for the day.
I added my own twist by sprinkling some Italian seasoning but you could also add in a mixture of dried herbs and chilli flakes. If you have access to sun dried tomatoes, then do give it a go.

The seasoning was mild and so feel free to increase by 1 tsp. We had it with some mayonnaise but sour cream onion dip would serve as a great spread too.

Adapted from Complete Cookbook-Pillsbury
~*What U Need*~
All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cup
Cornmeal - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Baking powder - 3 tsp
Salt - a big pinch
Corn kernels - 1 cup, cooked and drained
Italian seasoning - 2 tsp
Milk - 1 cup
Vegetable oil - 3 tbsp
Egg - 1

How I Made it:
Preheat oven to 200C. Grease and line a square pan or loaf pan. In a bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in the Italian seasoning and corn.

In a mixing bowl, combine milk, oil and egg ~ blend together.

Add the wet to the dry ingredients and mix till just combined. Pour into the greased pan and bake for 25-30 mins. Check for doneness and allow to cool.

Serve warm with sandwich spread or mayonnaise.

** My Notes:
** I halved the recipe and got 8 medium squares.
** You can skip the sugar too and add another pinch of salt.
** You can add 1 tbsp of chopped green chilli and coriander.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
