I saw this Pumpkin Cornbread recipe the day before I planned to make the Turkey Pumpkin Chili – score! Cornbread is the perfect accompaniment to chili, and what better side to serve with pumpkin chili than pumpkin cornbread?!

This cornbread was fantastic! Some cornbread recipes result in bread that is slightly on the dry side, but this one isn’t. It’s not moist like a cake, but in cornbread terms it’s definitely moist; I think the olive oil helps keep it from getting dry. This recipe is simple and quick to throw together. We both loved this cornbread and will be making it again soon!

This cornbread would also be great with traditional Turkey Chili!

Gluten Free Cornbread

Use gluten free measure for measure flour (such as Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Baking Flour) in place of all purpose flour to make the cornbread gluten free.
