I Like It! Rustic is the right word and I will make it again. I used soy milk - no problem. Didn't miss the flour either. I used a silocon pan-no problem. I may toy with using soy flour, jalepenos, cheddar cheese or cinnamon. Will make again!

Rustic! Yes!
Beautiful presentation, loved heating up the pan before baking, something I've never done before.
The flavor was amazing, and as promised, somehow nutty. It tasted great served warm with a bit of butter and honey. The only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars was how dry and crumbly mine bread turned out. How do I fix this? More butter? Ease up on the dry ingredients? I'm not sure but I'll try to find out, this recipe is definitely a keeper!

I don't think I have ever made cornbread without flour before. This produced nicely textured cornbread with a beautiful bottom crust which is visible in the picture. DH commented that it was "fluffier" than normal cornbread. This was served along side Crescent City Red Beans & Rice (Crock-Pot). Made for *ZWT 5*
