This recipe had me at beer-butter honey glaze. WHOA! Whoever invented this is just sheer genius and speaks to my inner glutton. No…seriously…I could sit down and eat this entire 9 inch cast iron skillet full of its fluffy interior with spicy jalapeno bits, corn kernels, and beer-butter honey glaze drizzled all over. I’ve made cornbread before and it’s always been a hit but this….this is the ultimate and is essential to you next Cinco de Mayo party, Taco Tuesday, or whatever you want to make it for. Celebrate for the sake of this dish and no one will be disappointed. Note: Make extra glaze so everyone can drizzle on their individual slice of jalapeño beer cornbread when served.

    What a cool idea! I must say, I’m glad you didn’t make the cones – I was feeling singularly unaccomplished!
