This is fantastic cornbread...the addition of the coconut milk (I used the low-fat kind) and pineapple combine to make a very moist and sweet bread. I did increase the amount of cornmeal to 2/3 cup because the batter seemed a little thin, but otherwise made as directed. Excellent! Made for ZWT #7.

Who would ever have thought of adding pineapple to cornbread??? This was quite a different taste for us, but we really enjoyed it. Made for ZWT 7.
