I get a lot of requests for recipes, some I can tackle and some I’d rather not. Awhile back I had a facebook follower ask for my attempt at traditional cornbread. I have to admit, I’ve never really eaten cornbread, forgive me if I am wrong but I think it is bigger in the U.S than here in Canada. Now that we are well into fall and all the chili’s and stews are popping up I thought it was a good time to get cracking with some lightened up cornbread. I can’t really compare it because like I mentioned I don’t really eat cornbread, but this my friends was delicious! Not too sweet as I don’t think cornbread is suppose to be and would go perfect with a big bowl of chili! It’s makes 12 decent sized servings, and if you do want to sweeten it up I suggest taking 1 tsp of honey, pop in microwave for 20 seconds and then drizzle over bread, so good! Each serving is just 3 smart points.
