- Time 1 hour minutes
- Serves 6
- 300g Masa Harina
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 egg at room temperature, beaten
- 56 g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 300ml of Butter milk
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees/180 degrees fan
- Grease a 12-inch cast iron skillet or an 8-inch square or round pan, and set it aside.
- In a large bowl, place the cornmeal, salt, baking soda and baking powder, and whisk to combine well. In separate bowl, mix the egg, butter, butter milk, grated cheddar, and whisk to combine well.
- Create a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. The mixture will be relatively thin. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, top with grated cheddar. Bake for 20-30min or until lightly golden brown on top, golden brown around the edges, and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Slice and serve immediately with salted butter.
