Cheesy Onion Cornbread

I think I managed to make the most unhealthy cornbread yesterday. Sometimes you just need some greasy bread to go with your healthy chili though, you know? I modified this recipe from

Cheesy Onion Cornbread

1 cup minus 1 tablespoon cornmeal
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
3/4 cups cooked corn, either frozen or from a can
1/2 cup chopped onion (red or white)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 9×9 pan (or cast iron skillet if you have one, which I don’t) with a generous amount of butter for extra crispiness and saturated fat

Mix together dry ingredients

Add remaining ingredients and mix until all dry ingredients are incorporated. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into 9 pieces and serve warm or room temperature. Just try to eat only one piece. You can’t do it.
