Cornbread is a favorite throughout America, though you will find different versions of it in different parts of the country. In the North, where the corn muffin holds the distinction as the official state muffin of Massachusetts, it tends to be sweeter and more cake-like. In the South it tends to have a fuller texture. In the Southwest you’ll often find cornbread flavored with chopped chilies and onions. In Cajun Land, they love crawfish, cheese, and pepper among other things.


  • 1 lb crawfish tails (ground meat or sausage may be substituted)
  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal

  • 1/2 cup bell peppers, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
