Corniest Corn Bread (or Muffins)

Corn bread is a great addition to your Thanksgiving feast and this is the best recipe I've made yet! Simple as can be with corn meal and spelt flour as its base and lightly sweetened with a bit of palm sugar. When corn was in season here in New York, the added juicy sweetness of the corn kernels was a real treat, but it's great without them too. As I mentioned last week this goes perfectly with the Potato Leek Soup. Enjoy! Corniest Corn Bread (or Muffins)Adapted from Dorie Greenspan’s Baking

I made the jam from fresh blueberries and chilled it overnight, then I made the cobbler in the morning. I count these as another success in my quest to tweak all of my favorite recipes so as not to need any refined sugar or white flour.

Quiche makes a hearty dinner served with a green salad and is equally great for brunch.
