Scallion Cornbread with Cheddar Cheese

I made this a week or so ago and it was the best cornbread I’ve had. I put a little corn in it and I used regular onions diced since i didn’t have scallions and I used Habanero Cheese since I didn’t have Cheddar Cheese.

10 Tbs all purpose-flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1 1/2 Tbs yellow cornmeal
1/2 Tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
5/8 tsp Kosher salt
1 egg
1/2 Tbs Light Corn syrup
10 Tbs buttermilk
6 Tbs unsalted butter melted
1/4 cup sliced scallions
1 5/16 oz sharp Cheddar cheese, sliced   into small squares

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small size mixing bowl, Whisk together the dry ingredients. Using a separate medium size bowl, whisk together wet ingredients. Slowly add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, whisking well to combine. add melted butter to batter, stirring slowly to incorporate. .Finish by folding in chopped scallions. Pour the batter into a 9-inch cast-iron skillet and then drop cheese cubes onto the top. Run a spatula over the surface to make sure all the cheese is submerged.

2. Bake until edges are a little crispy and top is golden brown., about 60 minutes.

3. Remove from oven and place skillet on a cooking rack, The cast-iron retains its heat and will continue to cook the cornbread.

4. Let cool for a bit before serving to allow the cornbread to set.
