The cornbread was made by early North American immigrants as an easy-to-transport and, more importantly, easy-to-cook food. It is still a fantastic and flexible meal despite having many different names and cooking methods, such as muffins, pancakes, sheet pan, casserole, and more. It is desirable if cornbread is made with vegetables.
Cornmeal, the ground corn used to make the bread’s foundation, is a whole grain, and gluten is often absent from cornmeal. Make sure no additional flours are added when using a mix to make cornbread, especially if you have gluten sensitivity or have celiac disease.
