This is actually a dessert and not actually cornbread. Recipe came from the back of a corn meal mix package. Quick to make and quite tasty too.

WOW ~ I never would have thought of this recipe on my own. When I told DH I was making Pineapple Cornbread he got the funniest look on his face. But right out of the oven he got the 1st piece ~ and got another funny look on his face :) The final verdict ~ he loved it! And so did I ~ sweet, crunchy, a different kind of texture, but very much a dessert! I'm going to make this for our Christmas buffet. Thanks for this great new recipe Sassy! Made for MY 3 CHEFS, November 2009!
