Chili Cornbread / Kukuruzni kruh sa čilijem

As it usually happens, I had this insane craving for cornbread and some chilies lying around the fridge and thus an idea was born. This bread whips up in no time and before you know it you’ll have a yummy vessel for your favorite jam or spread. It’s sweet, with just right amount of kick from the chilies.

In a large bowl, mix together flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Pour wet ingredients over dry ones and mix until fully incorporated and no big lumps remain. Fold in chili chunks, pour the mixture into prepared pan, gently shake to level, and bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean (a crumb or two are quite alright). Allow cornbread to cool for about 15 minutes before removing from the pan and let cool completely on a wire rack. Serve at room temperature with sweet or savory spread of your choice.

Kao što to obično biva, užasno mi se jeo kukuruzni kruh, a po frižideru mi se povlačilo par čili papričica i tako je ideja rođena. Ovaj kruh možete smutiti za čas i prije nego što se okrenete imati ćete finu podlogu za vaš najdraži pekmez ili namaz. Slatkasti je, sa pravom dozom ljutine od čili papričica.

PRIPREMA:

(Za 1 srednju štrucu / 15,30 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 ½ šalica kiselog mlijeka (4,50 kn)

¼ šalice rastopljenog maslaca + mrvica za namastiti kalup (4,00 kn)

1 žlica maslinovog ulja (0,33 kn)

1 šalica oštrog pšeničnog brašna (0,50 kn)

1 šalica kukuruznog brašna (0,75 kn)

3 žlice šećera (0,10 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

¼ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

4 male čili papričice, očišćene od sjemenki i tanko narezane (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Namastite kalup za pečenje i obložite masnim papirom, pa stavite na stranu. U maloj posudi razmutite jaja sa kiselim mlijekom. Dodajte rastopljeni maslac i maslinovo ulje, pa miješajte dok se sve ne sjedini.

U većoj posudi pomiješajte brašna, šećer, prašak za pecivo, sodu bikarbonu i sol. Prelijte mokre sastojke preko suhih i špatulom miješajte dok ne dobijete jednoličnu smjesu. Nježno umiješajte narezani čili pa smjesu izlite u pripremljeni kalup i njžno protresite kalup da se smjesa poravna. Pecite 35-40 minuta, dok kruh ne bude zlatno-smeđi i čačkalica umetnuta ne izađe čista (mrvica-dvije su isto okej). Pustite kruh da se ohladi 15 minuta u kalupu, prije nego ga izvadite i ohladite do kraja na rešetki. Poslužite na sobnoj temperaturi sa slatkim ili slanim namazom po vašem izboru.
