  1. You couldn't tell that this wasn't normal cornbread, and it was simple enough for my 9 year old to do most of it himself. :) For the Culinary Quest.
  2. Definitely yes, this is fantastic! It's moist with a fine crust and very flavourful. I don't find powdered buttermilk here, so I used one tablespoon canola lecithine instead, and it worked very well. One cup of water was enough - maybe because my sorghum flour seems to be a little different from what you get in the USA. This definitely is a very easy way to have a quick, tasty gluten free bread that doesn't taste gluten free at all :) Thanks for posting, Paula!<br/>Made for Turning Over a New Leaf (Diabetes Forum).


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
