My Turn to Try

I have not been able to get that cornbread out of my head: The staple cornbread of Z’Tejas, with the secret ingredient! The one that is more than just another buffet style cube shaped yellow bread, the one with a crunchy brown exterior baked in a skillet.


Back in July I was invited to review this fabulous restaurant, you remember?

When Lori and Alex came to visit last weekend we visited Z’Tejas for another extravagant meal. We salivated once again over the Grilled Shrimp and Guacamole Tostada Bites and the Cornbread, and added a few new menu items to our list of drool worthy necessities.

2 months is a long time to think about cornbread.

Secret Cornbread


I’d like to say this is the secret recipe for Z’Tejas Cornbread, but it’s just my cornbread with the Z’Tejas secret ingredient, but the best thing about it is it doesn’t require honey or butter because it’s baked right in.

Melt:
8 tablespoons butter
½ cup honey
Whisk until honey is thin and incorporated

Add:
½ cup sugar
Secret Ingredient: 1 cup Plain Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt, or two 5.3 oz containers
Stir to combine

Add:
1 ½ cups corn meal
1 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
Stir into honey mixture until wet

Add:
2 cups milk
4 eggs
Stir thoroughly

Pour into generously oil coated 11″ inch cast iron pan, or skillet
Bake at 400F°, 30-40 minutes
Feeds 10-12 servings

This is a great recipe for scratch made, home cooked cornbread, but do you want to get your grubby hands on some fluffy, moist and decadent Z’Tejas cornbread?

  1. I can't wait for my next trip to Utah so I can go to Zejas! and eat all the yummy dishes you have suggested. Especially the cornbread, because I like my cornbread thick and moist with lots of butter and honey poured
    on. This would be so nice to
    win!

  2. oh man how I love ztejas cornbread! It is so moist and crunchy and hot! Oh and did i mention the butter that comes with it makes it even better-We asked for more immediately! I completely forgot that it's secret ingredient is yogurt so thank you for the recipe! I've been eating it more and more ever since our amazing trip! Oh, and the pulled pork nachos were the BEST appetizer ever!
