Cornbread Christmas Tree with Bell Pepper Decorations

I picked up a couple tree shaped cake pans for 68¢ at Goodwill and thought this Cornbread Christmas Tree with Bell Pepper Decorations would be a fun idea. I took the time to cut circles for ornaments for the first try, um, don't do that... The batter seeps under and around the peppers and you couldn't really tell they were ornaments. Simply sprinkle diced peppers into the pan first, use a generous amount, I completely covered the pan. This would be a simple and cute addition to any meal at the holidays:@)
 I was tickled to find out that each cake pan holds half of the batter (or one box of Jiffy Mix).
My pan was sprayed with Bakers Joy, make sure you give it a good coating. 

1 C cornmeal
1 C A/P flour
1 C milk
1/4 C sugar
1/4 C butter
2 eggs
1 Tblsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Optional: diced peppers, enough to cover pan
  1. Spray baking pan well (or grease and flour pan) and sprinkle peppers into pan.
  2. Mix first 8 ingredients well, gently pour into prepared pan (or baking dish).
  3. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Allow to cool for a couple minutes once out of the oven, then turn out onto baking rack to cool completely.
Happy holiday planning:@)
