Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°. In a medium bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and CAYENNE PEPPER. In a large bowl, beat the eggs by hand. Stir in the creamed corn, chiles, butter and cheese. Fold in the dry ingredients. This can be baked in a greased 8- or 9-inch cast iron skillet, a greased square glass baking dish or a greased mini muffin tin (makes about 40 mini muffins). If using a skillet or baking dish, bake at 400° for 25-35 minutes. If using a mini muffin pan, bake for 10-12 minutes.

For the Maple Butter: Whip the butter. Drizzle in the syrup and mix until thoroughly combined. Serve with warm cornbread.
