Gluten-Free Baking and More, October 2006.
Name: Cornbread Breakfast Bake
Dear Elizabeth,
My sister-in-law made this dish for our last family get together. Of course, I couldn’t eat a bite of it. I asked her for the recipe, hoping I could convert it myself. Since it called for one “Jiffy” cornbread mix, it was hard to convert. Please help! I want to show my sister-in-law that gluten-free can be good too!

Dear Marcia,
I’m always happy to help convince people gluten-free eating can be fantastic. Your sister-in-law’s recipe is really unique. I’m sure your family will savor the gluten-free version just as much as the traditional recipe. Enjoy!
