Green Chile Cornbread Madeleines #BakingBloggers


This month, Sue of Palatable Pastime told the Baking Bloggers that for March we are dusting off our madeleine pans...and we learned that Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm didn't have one (but she bought one for this event) and Karen of Karen's Kitchen Stories has five pans! Well, I am somewhere in the middle there. I have a pan and I have used it. But I don't use it often enough. So I am grateful to have some new recipes to try. This is what the #BakingBloggers are sharing...


Green Chile Cornbread Madeleines

Throughout the years, I have made a variety of sweet madeleines from Lavender-Lemon Madeleines to Pink Peppercorn Madeleines. and Mint Chocolate Madeleines (all photographed above). But savory madeleines have been far fewer. I decided to fix that and, as luck would have it, my Precise Kitchen Elf requested cornbread madeleines a few months ago and I am just now getting around to posting the recipe. Perfect timing.

"Oh...and can you make chili to go with those?!?" Ummm...okay. If you haven't figured it out: I'm easily swayed and prone to culinary suggestion. I dug out my madeleine pan.*

Ingredients
  • butter or oil for greasing the madeleine pan
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons organic granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teasoiib baking soda
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 Tablespoon green chiles, finely chopped
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup corn kernels (I used canned, drained and blotted dry)

Procedure

Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease, or butter, your madeleine pan and set aside.

Whisk together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium mixing bowl. Set aside. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs and then pour in the buttermilk and mix until smooth. Fold in the cheese, green chiles, and corn kernels.

Stir together the wet and dry ingredient until just moistened. Take care not to overmix as the madeleines will get tough.

Place in the oven and bake till the madeleines puff up and the edges are golden, Mine took approximately 13 to 15 minutes.

Remove the pans from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for 3 to 5 minutes. Unmold. You may be able to tap them out; I used a small spatula to ease them out of the molds onto the cooling racks.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
