The creator and admin of this group Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen is a seasoned baker! You probably can find the breads and bakes from every region of the world on her blog! Such inspiring and still very humble work! Swathi along with Suja of Kitchen Corner came up with the challenge of the month for November!


Though I had these corn muffins on the blog earlier and I thought that I would not blog this one, but the results are so outstanding  that I have to share it! It has just come out perfect! I have adapted their recipe to make it half portion and egg less and making it more savory than the regular. Somehow I don’t like the corn bread any sweet!

When I dug my greedy teeth into this lush golden bread, I was in food heaven! It reminded me so much of Indian Makki ki Roti! Such a yahoo moment for me! 😀

Sharing this with the fellows at Angie’s Fiesta Friday, co-hosted by Johanne and Liz ! 

This is how I baked it!

  1. Sonal, you have to send me a message thru WhatsApp on how did you get those beautiful photos. 😀 Your photos improved a lot. Wohooo! This looks so good, too. xx

  2. Welcome to FF Sonal! A skillet cornbread has never been more gorgeous presented or captured on camera. I am swooning over both the photos and the bread! The addition of the olives and flaxseeds with just a bit of cheddar takes this over the top and makes for one stunning cornbread. Thank you for bringing it to the party!
