We are trying to cook healthier this year. This cornbread uses cooked pumpkin, squash or sweet potato puree. A 4 oz. or 41/2 oz. jar of baby food (check to make sure it is just puree) works well in this recipe. This gives the cornbread a deep golden color.

I made this using My Take on Sneaky Orange Puree and it turned out really good! My husband and son loved it! Thanks! Made for 123 Hit Wonders game.

A nice cornbread for being low fat. I used buttermilk and pumpkin puree since that is what I had on hand. Next time I will use sweet potato puree and I think enjoy the flavor a little more. Served this with Dancer's Colorful Bean Stew Casserole for a quick weekday meal.

For not having any fat, this is a very good cornbread. I used a 4 oz container of the baby food sweet potatoes and nonfat yogurt. Went very well with homemade soup.
