Gluten Free Cornbread

It is chili season- FINALLY. There is something so comforting about a hearty bowl of chili. Someone asked us recently what our favorite brothy soup was, and we had to scoff a little. We are not broth lovers, and prefer a chunky chili any day of the year. The love of a chunky chili is paired with a love of another thing: Cornbread.

Growing up, we both had moms that made cornbread for the family when we sat down to eat during the fall and winter. This is no fault of theirs of course, but they went the boxed route. *tiny gasp* We obviously are slightly more high maintenance than that, and wanted to whip up something homemade as an alternative to a box. This gluten free cornbread is extremely easy, and has a thick texture when you need to load a scoop of chili onto it! We cannot get enough, and love this recipe for this time of year. Upon reflection, the thing that we may love most about a big ol’ slice of cornbread is the addition of honey…
