Alright, you guys asked for it, and now you got it! It took me a few days to get the recipe just right though…This cornbread is gluten-free and oh so simple to make :) Don’t be scared though! I’m not gluten free and neither are the guinea pigs at the office that get to taste my experiments, but they loved it and I thought it was pretty tasty too. The batter is a great base to add different chopped vegetables or spices to give this cornbread a funky twist. Also, it goes perfect with my turkey chili recipe from last week, so I hope you enjoy it!
