Jalapeno Cornbread

from my sweet mother in law!

2 1/2 cups cornmeal
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 T sugar (I use honey)
1 T salt
4 t baking powder
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup oil
1 can cream corn
6-8 jalapeno peppers*
2 cups grated sharp cheese
1 large onion, grated

In a bowl, stir together cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. In a separate bowl, beat eggs light and stir in milk and oil. Add liquid mixture to the cornmeal mixture and stir in cream corn and jalapenos, cheese and onion. Pour the batter into 2 well greased 9x13 baking pans. Bake in a hot oven 425 degrees for 25 minutes or until done in center. Almost a meal in itself.

*I don't like things hot so I omit the peppers and use a small can of green chilies! :)
