A Teaspoon of Happiness

Sweet Olive Oil Cornbread

Sweet Olive Oil Cornbread | A Teaspoon of Happiness

I’ve always had a thing for cornbread, but lately I’ve been thinking about it like crazy. So the other night when I made us some Sweet Potato & Lentil Chili (recipe coming later this week), cornbread immediately popped into my brain. But, of course, we didn’t have any butter so I figured my craving would just have to wait for another day, and I continued with whatever I was doing while I waited for the chili to finish.

Minutes when by and I was still thinking about the cornbread and how I could manage to make some without actually using butter. I knew there had to be a way, so I started brainstorming and decided to use olive oil. It’s the perfect “fat” for savory cooking and since I didn’t want the cornbread to actually taste sweet, I decided to just go for it.

The cornbread was literally in the oven 10 minutes later. It was that simple. In fact, I think I might prefer using olive oil to butter because the only kitchen tools I needed were a whisk and a bowl (instead of an electric mixer). So much easier to clean up. I didn’t even bother greasing the pan, and it turns out that creates and even better and crunchier crust.

Guess what. This baby is literally due in 1 MONTH! Can you believe it? Because I can’t. In just one month, we’re going to be parents. It’s absolutely crazy stuff.

It’s hard to believe that summer is pretty much over. It seems like just yesterday I was waking up to a frozen pond at our apartment in Green Bay. Somehow, it’s five months later and we’re living in France patiently waiting for the arrival of Baby Girl B. Can you believe we only have 5
