Friday recipe: no-oil cornbread

April 8, 2011 —

Today you’re getting a cornbread recipe for no reason other than cornbread sounds really good to me today! Random, I know.

As a kid I thought cornbread was disgusting. Now I think it’s so yummy and I follow my mom’s habit of adding a yellow cake mix. NOT healthy. So here’s a healthier version. I like that it’s got no oil and has a little yogurt in it.

Excellent, healthy cornbread – from allrecipes.com
