1 c yellow (or white) cornmeal
1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 pkg cornbread mix (approx 3-4 oz)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 c buttermilk
1/2 c sour cream
1/4 c olive oil
1 can (8 3/4 oz) cream-cream style corn
1/3 chopped onion
2 tbsp minced jalapeno pepper
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

In a large mixing bowl, combine first 6 ingredients. Combine remaining ingredients; add to dry ingredients and stir only until moistened. Pour into a greased 9-inch square baking pan or heavy 8inch skillet. Bake at 350 degrees, or until bread is golden brown and tests done.

**When you take the cornbread out of the oven, you'll probably need to work a knife all around the edges of skillet to make sure the bread won't stick.
