Betony’s Custard Filled Blue Cornbread
This recipe has become a 4th of July tradition at our house. It is rich and satisfying. The blue cornmeal has a slightly more delicate texture than the yellow and just elevates it to the next level. And, its patriotic…
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for pan
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup blue cornmeal (yellow is fine too if you can’t find blue)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
- 1 cup fresh or thawed frozen corn kernels
- 1 cup heavy cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-by-2-inch round baking pan, and place in the oven to preheat. Whisk flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium bowl; set aside.
Whisk eggs and butter in a large bowl. Whisk in sugar, salt, milk, and vinegar. Add flour mixture, and whisk until just smooth. Stir in corn kernels.
Transfer batter to heated pan. Pour cream into center of batter; do not stir – this part will seem a little weird, but just trust me, its glorious and works. Bake until pale golden brown and set, about 50 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack 15 minutes. Unmold, and serve warm.
