    Wendy-Bob's Note:

    I battled to make cornbread for ages but found it impossible to find cornmeal in the UK, so I now make this version with Polenta. I'll be honest - I have absolutely no idea what the difference is between cornmeal and polenta (perhaps there is none?), but I reckon this is a really nice recipe all the same. I have no frame of reference, so I can't compare the flavours/textures of this with "proper" cornbread, but hopefully it won't disappoint! This recipe is with chilli & cheese but it's a pretty versatile dish and I've flung all sorts of ingredients into the past (savory or sweet) and it always tastes pretty good to me. My other half particularly enjoys it sweet with oodles of golden syrup!

      Good basic cornbread recipe when there's no cornmeal! I'm living in Argentina and so far I haven't found any cornmeal, just lots of polenta! So I tried this recipe and it's very good and seems very versatile! I'm from the south of the US so I have been wanting to make cornbread down here in South America for some time! Thanks for the recipe!
