Orange Poppyseed Cornbread

IMG_5194Hey there-  We had friends in for Sunday afternoon bowls of chicken chili and put this cornbread in the oven to go alongside.  Really, what’s more homey than cornbread?  And this version has the citrus added touch and the bit of crunch from all those poppy seeds.
It really is easy to love and easy to make…

1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 egg
1/4 cup orange juice
3/4 cup milk
grated peel off one orange
2 tsp. poppy seeds

Stir together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt and egg.  Then mix in the orange juice, milk, grated orange peel and poppy seeds.  Bake it up in a 9″ cake pan that’s been sprayed with cooking spray– 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, until it’s nicely browned on top.

Of course, it goes without saying you also need butter and honey or spoonfuls of jam to slather on the hot cornbread.
