Cornbread (Low Fat)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Susie D

This is an adopted recipe and is a lowfat twist on southern cornbread. I still prefer my regular skillet cornbread, but if low fat is one of your requirements you might like this one.

A big bowl of spicy chili and a slab of cornbread is my definition of comfort food. I made this using whole wheat flour as that was all I had at the moment; to compensate, as experience tells me it absorbs a little more liquid than all purpose flour, I added an extra tablespoon of yogurt to my half batch. Prepared mine in a preheated cast iron skillet and was rewarded with a low rise bread with a crispy exterior and dense and chewy interior. Just perfect for sopping up my chili. Thanks! Made for PAC 2008.
