Alright you guys (or should I say ya’ll)? I was born and raised in the northern midwest (Minnesota) so I’m used to saying ‘you guys’. But now that I’m living in the south (Northern Florida), I’m getting used to saying ‘ya’ll’. I have to admit I kind of prefer saying ‘ya’ll’.
Ok Ya’ll, Let’s get into this Cornbread recipe! 🙂
Ever since I’ve been living in Florida I’ve been learning more about ‘Southern Food’. I also spent a fair amount of time in Tennessee while traveling, and have grown to absolutely love the food of the ‘South’.
Southern food is soul food. It’s usually food that’s been cooked with recipes passed down from generation to generation.
It seems like every time I go into a restaurant down here, there’s for sure always going to be these 2 things on the menu: Grits and Cornbread.
Now I’ve tried Grits, and honestly I just don’t care for them. It seems like every time I try them, they are super greasy and don’t sit well in my stomach. Cary on the other hand loves Grits and orders them almost every time for his side dish. I guess he’s more of a southerner then me. 🙂
Cornbread on the other hand, I love! Cornbread at every meal? Yes please! 🙂
So I was thinking to myself that Cornbread must be Gluten Free if it’s made from Cornmeal right?! Wrong! Well after eating so much Cornbread and feeling the effects on my stomach I realized I needed to research the ingredients. Well it turns out most recipes also use flour along with the Cornmeal…*sigh*.
Well I decided to made a Cornbread that was Gluten Free using Almond Flour instead…Oh Yeah! My Cornbread eating days are back! 🙂
Making cornbread is super easy to make. Literaly it only takes about 25 minutes from start to finish. So this makes for a nice easy side dish even if you’re making a really quick dinner during the busy work week.
I also like to drizzle some extra honey on mine…the sweeter the better. 🙂
