Cornbread

P1020179 small

A friend of mine made this delicious gluten-free cornbread.  She used a mixture of brown rice flour and potato starch in place of all-purpose flour, but you can substitute the Trader Joe’s gluten-free flour if that’s what you have.  Just check the cornbread after 20-25 minutes to make sure it isn’t baking faster than expected.
