vidalia onion cornbread

Recipe by

This is a gluten free adaptation of Paula Deen's recipe. I've made this several times, and it has quickly become one of my family's favorites. I use organic yellow cornmeal and whole buttermilk. I really could not imagine dill (of all things) in a cornbread recipe, but it is really good with it! This bread also reheats wonderfully if frozen. You can microwave a slice for about 40 seconds, cook it in a toaster oven for about 5 minutes and have a slice that tastes as if it was just baked for the first time.
