  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Preheat the oven to 400 F.​
  3. Step 3

    Thoroughly grease and flour a 9 × 9-inch baking pan (or use a nonstick baking pan or a flexible silicone pan). Or use a cast-iron skillet.
  4. Step 4

    Sift together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt.​
  5. Step 5

    Combine the milk, eggs, butter (or shortening) and sugar, if using.​
  6. Step 6

    Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ones and mix just until the flour is moistened, no more than 10 to 15 seconds. Then fold in the corn, diced peppers, and cheese, but don't overmix the batter or the cornbread will be too tough.​
  7. Step 7

    Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake the cornbread immediately.
  8. Step 8

    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cornbread comes out clean and the edges of the cornbread start to separate from the pan.

    Serve and enjoy.
