While on a family vacation in Virginia last year, we ate at a restaurant called Food For Thought. They serve sweet potato cornbread with their was delicious. Being the health conscious person that I am, I created this recipe. (Note: I use salt substitute in this recipe and a baking powder that is sodium free)
