      Someone was bringing an Italian Bean soup to the New Year's Eve potluck and the host suggested a cornbread to go with, so I went searching here for something other than plain cornbread. This turned out to be the perfect flavors for the soup. It was a hit. I doubled it with no problem and baked it in a 9 x 13-inch oblong pan.

      This is a very unique cornbread! Not sweet in the least (which is fine with me), and an unusual assortment of flavors and textures. Truly enjoyed it, and easy to make. Will definitely make again. Thanks, Ice Cool Kitty!!!
