I have always loved cornbread, but my ultimate favorite cornbread is sugary sweet with pops of corn in it! This cornbread is quick to whip up, and can be made gluten free, soy free, peanut free and tree nut free.
The great thing about this sweet cornbread is that my super uper duper picky eater – loves it!!! This is the same picky eater that refused to eat any and all fruits and vegetables unless I hide them in baked goods. I don’t know what it is about this cornbread, but he doesn’t mind the pops of corn! Which is another win in my book, because that’s my favorite part about it.
Finally, I love that I can use this recipe year round. Whether as an addition to some great fall chili or winter soup, or as a side for a summer BBQ or spring salad, it’s perfect!
