Jalapeño Cornbread with Peach Honey

Recipe Blog Post



(* indicates my preferred ingredients – see notes for alternatives)


1 cup yellow cornmeal

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup buttermilk

1 egg, slightly beaten

½ cup O&V Jalapeño Grapeseed oil *

¼ cup O&V Unflavored EVOO *

1 jar O&V Peach Honey for drizzling *

¼ cup seeded and sliced jalapeños (optional)





Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.  Brush oil in an 8”-x-8” pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper and oil the parchment paper as well.


In a large bowl, whisk all dry ingredients together – cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt


In a separate bowl, mix all the liquid ingredients together until smooth and creamy – buttermilk, egg, jalapeño oil, unflavored oil.


Add the liquids to the dry ingredients and stir gently to mix. Do not over mix. Fold in the jalapeños (reserving a few for the top)


Pour the batter into the prepared tin and top with the reserved sliced jalapeños.


Bake for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick stuck in the middle, comes out clean




Optional: add ½ cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese when adding the jalapenos to the batter for extra savory flavor.




Serve with Fiesta Chicken Bowl, Hot Honey Ribs, Pulled Pork with Bourbon Peach Sauce



Serves 6-12

Active time 15 minutes Total Time: 40-45 minutes





* The spice of the Jalapeño oil is a great counterpoint to the sweetness of the Peach Honey. Changing the proportions of the Unflavored Oil and Jalapeño oil can change out the level of spiciness or use a lot more chopped jalapeños in the batter which will provide some heat, but not the same flavor and texture of using the jalapeño oil. Feel free to use a local honey in place of the Peach Honey, although that will change out the flavor of the dish some. All highlighted products are available at Oil & Vinegar stores.
