I loved this bread. It is nothing like southern cornbread that we are used to in the US. I just loved the flavors of the spices.

This was fantastic! While the stew was only eaten half, the bread had completely gone after dinner LOL So, no danger of drying out. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!
