I adapted this recipe from Once Upon a Tart by Frank Mentesana and Jerome Audureau. If I was to visit New York, I would be sure to stop by their bakeshop and cafe for some most delicious eats and I would bring my dear friend Susan too. In addition to tarts, they serve mouthwatering soups, sandwiches, salads, condiments, quick breads and cookies. All of the recipes I have tried from this beautifully illustrated informative book have worked out perfectly. I think this cookbook is out of print and that is a shame. If your wallet is stuffed with cash, the used copies are truly worth the money.
I have always been looking for blue cornmeal and finally found some at a local health food store. Made from whole blue corn and with a slightly sweet flavor, this is surely a staple to have on hand in addition to yellow cornmeal. I will be exploring this hard to find grain often.
Yet another idea for your Christmas dinner.

A moist and delicious cornbread cooked in a skillet — with a beautiful soft texture like a cake and a wonderful blue and yellow cornmeal taste with a little mellow sweetness and gentle jalapeño heat, this cornbread is a great choice for an afternoon tea, and could almost be served as a guilt-free dessert
