Corn Bread was in my to-do list for a long time now. Finally I could give it a try and found it very appealing. Though I didn't prepare the corn bread in the traditional way, we all liked it. I would have added a little more spice but stopped myself as I had to please my older one! Lucky me, as my older one was pretty impressed. 

Corn Bread

A group of bloggers are part of a monthly event called 'Magic Mingle' initiated by Kalyani wherein she announces two ingredients that need to be used in a recipe and posted during the first 2 weeks of every month. This time she has chosen Cinnamon and Chillies. So after lot of deliberation I settled for making this corn bread with the special ingredients.

I borrowed the basic corn bread recipe from here. I just halved the recipe, added in red chilli flakes and cinnamon for the 'extra punch' and lo! the recipe is perfect for a moderately spicy corn bread with a hint of cinnamon in every bite!!

Ingredients - 

Milk 3/4 cup
Apple Cider Vinegar 3/4 Tbsp
Oil 1 Tbsp
Cornmeal 1/2 cup
Maida/All Purpose Flour  1/2 cup
Sugar 1 Tbsp
Salt 1/4 tsp (approx)
Baking Powder 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda 1/4 tsp
Red Chilli Flakes 1 tsp
Cinnamon Powder 1/2 tsp

Corn Bread

Method Of Preparation -

Preheat the oven to 425 F.

Prepare a baking pan by spraying oil. [I used a standard loaf pan as I didn't have a smaller baking tin available immediately. I sprayed oil and lined the base with parchment paper.]

Mix milk, apple cider vinegar and oil and set aside.

In another mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix well.

Add the Milk-Oil-Vinegar mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until just blended.

Pour the batter into the prepared baking tin and place in the center rack of the preheated oven.

Bake for about 15-18 min or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
[I pulled out mine at 17 min and the crust was very crisp and crunchy - just like we love!!]

Transfer onto a wire rack to cool. Slice and enjoy!
