  • 400 ml milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 60 g butter - melted
  • 200 g corn
  • 1/2 bunch of spring onions - chopped
  • 1 cup polenta
  • 1/2 cup bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Chipotle Butter

  • 250 g butter - softened
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle - minced
  • juice of 1/2 of a lime
  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander (cilantro)


  • lime wedges
  • spring onions - chopped
  • coriander (cilantro) - chopped



  • Preheat oven to 200°C
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the milk, eggs, butter, corn and spring onions.
  • In a separate medium bowl, mix together the polenta, bread flour, baking powder, caster sugar and salt.
  • Combine the two bowls together and immediately pour into a lined loaf tin and place immediately into the oven.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cook for 4 minutes before turning the bread out of the tin onto a cooling rack.
  • Once the loaf is cool, trim off the ends of the cornbread, and slice the remainder of the loaf into 8 equal slices.
  • Set aside until the chipotle butter is made. You can also make the chipotle butter ahead of time.

Chipotle Butter

  • Mix all the ingredients together.
  • Serve while the butter is still soft.
  • The chipotle butter can be made ahead of time and stored it in the refrigerator for up to one week.


  • In a large skillet on medium-high heat, heat a dash of oil.
  • Carefully place the slices of cornbread in the pan and fry until the bottom is golden brown.
  • Flip the slices and fry again until the bottom is golden brown.
  • Repeat this process until all the cornbread slices have been browned.
  • Place two slices of browned cornbread on a plate and top with a generous dollop of the chipotle butter.
  • Garnish with some coriander leaves, a wedge of lime, and some sliced spring onions.
  • Enjoy!
