Flaxseed-Chile Corn Bread with Asiago Cheese

Lisa Turner | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 12 people

Nutty, dense, and packed with flavor and healthy flaxseeds. Serve warm alongside a Southern-style meal of fiber-rich red beans and braised greens. Or toast and top with poached eggs for a hearty breakfast.

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚. In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper. Use a fork to whisk in scallions, cheese, serrano pepper, and corn. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, buttermilk, egg, agave, and oil. Add to cornmeal mixture, stirring just until combined (don’t overmix).
  2. Pour into a lightly greased 9x13-inch baking pan. Bake on middle oven rack for 18–20 minutes, until golden and an inserted tester comes out clean.
