This flavourful cornbread packs a bit of bite. To heat things up a little more, include the jalapeño pepper seeds. If you’d prefer a less spicy version, decrease or omit the cayenne pepper and jalapeño pepper.

2/3 cup 150 mL buttermilk
2/3 cup 150 mL milk
1 cup 250 mL shredded Cheddar cheese
3 tbsp 45 mL butter, melted
