When the daytime temperature hits around 50 degrees and the evening plunges to 30 or lower, it is time to begin the annual maple syrup processing in our neck of the woods. We use it for many things and one of them is this cornbread. I first had a jalapeno cornbread in Texas, made by my sister's cowboy husband's aunt Netha, and since we with have maple syrup and pigs here in Cass County, Michigan, I brought it all together in this recipe. The reviews say it all: IT'S OUTSTANDING! I am using some gluten-free flour here, but make it with all-purpose all the time. The results will be the same: DELICIOUS! NOTE: an extra egg will require a few extra minutes to cook. Without opening the oven door, you can reduce the heat to 400 at the 23 minute mark, and add five minutes to the timer. Remember the toothpick-in-the-center-comes-out-clean-it's-done trick. The following recipe is for 8" skillets. I will also make this recipe in a 10" skillet - it comes out less high, but requires a shorter bake time. TIP: Someone asked how I get such evenly diced bacon. Freeze it before you cut it. It is very easy (and clean) to work with frozen bacon: not greasy and can be cut in all sorts of ways. Bacon thaws very quickly.
