No one will ever know. This cornbread is fantastic. Slather with butter or drizzle with honey or molasses.

You couldn't tell that this wasn't normal cornbread, and it was simple enough for my 9 year old to do most of it himself. :) For the Culinary Quest.

Definitely yes, this is fantastic! It's moist with a fine crust and very flavourful. I don't find powdered buttermilk here, so I used one tablespoon canola lecithine instead, and it worked very well. One cup of water was enough - maybe because my sorghum flour seems to be a little different from what you get in the USA. This definitely is a very easy way to have a quick, tasty gluten free bread that doesn't taste gluten free at all :) Thanks for posting, Paula!
