Gluten free Cornbread

This is a soft bread that can be served with a spoon - hence its alternative name, spoonbread -and is popular in the USA, where corn is a staple. It makes a good side dish but is not suitable for sandwiches or toast, and is best served warm from the oven. Cornmeal (not to be confused with cornflour/cornstarch) is available from health stores, Indian grocers and some supermarkets.
