There is something about chili with cornbread isn't there? I had planned to make this buffalo chicken chili and then I saw this recipe for pumpkin cornbread.
I just bought about 6 cans of pumpkin so this was perfect!
The flavors went well together. We all loved it! Both the chili and pumpkin cornbread were even better the next day!
Inspired from Sweet as Sugar Cookies
1 cup flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup pumpkin
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp. molasses
2 tbsp. milk
Spray an 8 x 8 baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, spices, brown sugar and cornmeal. In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs, and then stir in the pumpkin, oil, milk and molasses. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until combined, and then pour the batter into the pan, smoothing out the top as much as possible. Bake 25 - 30 minutes at 400 degrees, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
