Every time I make this cornbread, a common comment is, "It tastes as good as cake!" If you want to test that theory, just set a plate of this cornbread on your table and watch how fast it disappears! No grainy texture here! Grab a cold glass of buttermilk or serve it with some beans, chili, or soups. Enjoy! Oh....did I mention that this cornbread not only looks fantastic, but it is also gluten-free. Yep, I almost forgot that. :)
