Being raised in the South I regularly consumed cornbread. When I decided to go grain-free, prior to becoming Keto, I missed cornbread. I worked hard to come up with a delicious substitute that resembles what I grew up on. Cornbread is one of those foods that, depending on how it was made in your area, you will either love this version or not. This version should resemble a slightly sweet cornbread, almost like the Jiffy mix type.

    Pour batter in oiled/greased baking pan using a spatula. Use spatula to evenly spread out batter.
