Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1 Cup(c)  yellow cornmeal
1 1/2 Cup(c)  hot water
1   small yellow onion, peeled and minced
1 Tablespoon(T)  olive oil
3 Tablespoon(T)  butter
3   large eggs, separated, with the yolks in a small bowl and the whites in a large mixing bowl
1/2 Cup(c)  cottage cheese
1 Cup(c)  muenster cheese, grated
1/2 Cup(c)  milk
8 Ounce(oz)  corn kernels, drained
1 Teaspoon(t)  baking powder
1/4 Teaspoon(t)  allspice, ground
1/4 Teaspoon(t)  cumin, ground
1/4 Teaspoon(t)  sweet paprika
1/4 Teaspoon(t)  salt


Mix the cornmeal with the hot water in a medium bowl. Saute the minced onions in the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat until limp, about 3 minutes. Cream the butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, and then blend in the egg yolks and cottage cheese. With a spoon, stir in the cornmeal, sauteed onions, Muenster cheese, milk, corn, baking powder, allspice, cumin, paprika and salt. Beat the egg whites with the electric mixer until they form soft peaks. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the cornmeal batter with a rubber spatula. Do not beat. The finished batter will be soupy. Pour it into a greased 2 quart square or round baking pan. Bake the corn bread in a preheated 400° F oven until it is firm in the center, about 50 to 55 minutes. Cool the corn bread in the pan for 15 minutes, then cut it into squares or wedges.
