  • 1 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Fine Ground Cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp. Salt

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil to a 10" skillet over medium high heat, then add in the corn and jalapeño peppers to saute until browned, about 5-6 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add in the honey, buttermilk, and whisked eggs, then stir together until evenly combined. Fold in the browned corn and jalapeños, as well as the shredded cheddar.
