Fresh Basil & Corn

Preheat oven to 400F. Prepare an 8x8x2 glass pan.
Whisk

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup flour (or half white, half whole wheat)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 stick butter chilled, diced into pea-sized pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups corn kernels
  • *If you do not have buttermilk, add 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice or white vinegar to milk and let stand for several minutes until it begins to curdle

Method

Preheat oven to 400F. Prepare an 8x8x2 glass pan.
Whisk buttermilk, eggs, and basil in mixing bowl. Add butter.
In another bowl, mix cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together until well incorporated.
Incorporate dry ingredients into wet and mix well with a wooden spoon. Add corn, again be sure everything is well incorporated. Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
Bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. I suggest checking it at about 30 minutes, as your oven may work at a different rate & you don't want this to burn.
