At my house cornbread is never sweet and is always baked in an iron skillet. Just the way my mama made it. And I bake it fairly often as it can help turn leftovers or a few things from the garden into a meal.

    rcatwill, I’ve never tried this one. It’s a gluten-free recipe–no regular flour. Were you looking specifically for a gluten-free recipe, or just cornbread in general?
