Seriously, who doesn’t love the stuff? It’s super easy to make, tastes great with anything and everything and can be made a gazillion different ways. It certainly deserves a shout-out once in a while.
One of my FAVE variations on cornbread is this delicious Gluten-Free Spiced Pumpkin Cornbread
. It’s made with unique spices like cumin and cloves that render a really unique flavor, and the pumpkin puree also lends itself to the tastiness and moistness of the bread. Oh, and it’s sans gluten, so everyone can enjoy it. WIN.
All you need to do is combine the dry ingredients, combine the wet ingredients, stir them together and bake it all up until it’s nice and golden brown. It tastes great on its own warm from the oven or as a side to a big bowl o’ chili or a Christmas feast (hint, hint).
