Cornbread totally weirded me out the first time I made it. 

You see, growing up in Australia, I just didn't know anyone who ate cornbread or made it... and whenever we were on holidays in the US, we never really came across it. 

But then I fell in love with a Southern guy and suddenly found myself making all these foods I'd never even thought of making before I met him.

I mean really. The first Christmas we spent together, I asked him what traditional Christmas foods his family would eat for Christmas and he said "dressing" and I was like "err.... on salad?". 

Nope, not salad. Jesse was talking about a cornbread concoction of vegetables and eggs and cornbread, baked up and served in big slices. 

Combine this with making my first ever pumpkin pie (and being so confused as to how a pumpkin pie could actually taste good as I'd only ever eaten pumpkin as a savoury food - oh, how wrong I was) and my brain was pretty much imploding...

And let's be real, I was in serious foreign territory. 

My pumpkin pie may have been delicious, but my first ever batch of cornbread was flat and grossly crunchy and resembled more of a hockey puck than an edible delight.

But I was determined to conquer it.... and after many, many, many failed batches I did - and I've been keeping it from you.. 

Not on purpose, just because it felt a little too plain and boring... but sometimes boring things are actually the most delicious - so let me introduce to you The Best Gluten Free Cornbread Recipe. 

It's light, fluffy and seriously, ridiculously good. Whilst cornbread was a foreign concept to me 10 years ago, it's now one of my all time favourite foods - and it's all thanks to this recipe. So even if cornbread sounds strange to you, give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!
