I modified my mother-in-law’s beloved cornbread recipe to create this. The pumpkin gives the gluten free-flours a moisture and spring, and the lemon juice and spices lifts the mix.

This cornbread recipe uses no flour or sugar, only polenta, buttermilk, butter, egg and oil, making it gluten free and basic. Cooked right in the frying pan.
