Super delicious Gluten Free Masa Cornbread, so easy!!

My hubby is from the South where cornbread is King.  When we stopped eating gluten he bravely succumbed to my inferior gluten free cornbread attempts with a kind word and sad smile....Today he is grinning from ear to ear.

I did it!!  Finally skillet cornbread that tastes just like what we used to make!  Moist on the inside and crisp on the bottom.  He loved it and I'm tickled pink.  Sadly, he only got these two pieces for now.  I cubed the rest, mixed it with my homemade bread and baked it all into stuffing mix for Thanksgiving.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I am very thankful for your support and friendship.  big hugs
