Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place a rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Blend half of the corn kernels with 2 tablespoons of milk or water. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the cornmeal, salt and baking soda. Add the remaining corn kernels, pureed corn, collard greens, jalapeño and oil. Mix until well blended, the batter will be very thick.
  4. Put a 9-inch cast iron skillet or round baking pan into the oven with the 2 tablespoons of butter. Put into the oven for 3 minutes or until the butter has melted.
  5. Remove from the oven and pour in the cornbread batter. Spread and flatten the top, then bake for 35 minutes or until the cornbread pulls away from the sides of the pan and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the pan, cut into slices and serve. Store in the refrigerator.

Chef Tips

If you like spice in your cornbread, add more jalapenos. If you prefer it milder, use less.

  1. Um, there's a step missing here. I can fill in the blanks and guess the eggs, yogurt and cheese go in at step 3. Eggs one at a time probably. But maybe correct the recipe?

    1. Hi Paul, are you able to see the ingredients list? We've found that sometimes this section can be tricky for some browsers. Fresh or frozen corn is listed as the 1st ingredient in the list, and you may have already seen that it gets pureed in step 2 and added to the cornbread mixtured in step 3.
