Oh wow, this cornbread is awesome! It is light and fluffy with great taste and the jam really adds something special!
I made half the recipe using a flax egg and a tad less sugar and jam. It worked out very nicely and my cornbread muffins were devoured very quickly.
Thank you so much for sharing this keeper with us, peachez!
