Yummiest Cornbread

Just before diwali sometime I saw this cornbread from Nandita of SaffronTrail and it positively looked very very yum so I decided to try my hands at it. I love the slightly nutty flavour of corn in anything and I am glad I did because when she says the best ever cornbread I agree with her… it was just divine.

    Steps

    1. In a bowl mix and sift all dry ingredients i.e flours, salt, sugar, flaxseed powder and baking powder together.
    2. In another bowl whisk all the wet ingredients together i.e eggs, buttermilk, milk and oil. Whisk till well blended.
    3. Now mix the wet ingredients in the dry ingredients just till incorporated.
    4. Add the jalapenos, corn kernels, coriander leaves. Like Nandita I also added a few spoons of brine of the jalapenos here.
    5. Pour in a greased loaf tin. I also lined the tin with aluminium foil as I find the loaf easy to remove if its lined and I had run out of baking/parchment paper.
    6. Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for about 20 minutes or so till a skewer comes out clean from the centre.
    7. We had it with spicy green chutney and tomato sauce and a tall glass of orange juice. Perfect for breakfast.
