A recipe for cornbread that, once you try it, you will not want to use another. It can be made with low -fat yogurt and low-fat milk and will still taste just as great. Try serving it alongside barbecued ribs, or with a hot bowl of chili. It is equally delicious sliced warm from the oven and topped with your favourite jelly or jam. This cornbread is also excellent as a base for turkey stuffing that is always a crowd-pleaser.

Dry ingredients:

  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • ½ cup unbleached flour

  • Melt the butter in a 2-litre casserole or baking dish in the oven or microwave. Swirl the melted butter around the pan so that you are in effect greasing the bottom and sides of the pan.

    This cornbread is light, fluffy and delicious. Cornbread is often dry but this one is moist . It can easily accompany savoury dishes like chilli or ribs. It is equally delicious with jam for breakfast or snack.
