Gluten Free Cornbread with Cherry Butter

Gluten Free Cornbread with Cherry Butter

This is probably one of the best things to ever come out of my kitchen.  It is bright and has a rich flavor!  Perfect as a side dish, breakfast, dessert or afternoon snack.

This lightly sweetened cornbread is perfectly moist.  The vibrant cherry butter not only adds color but gives it a bright pop of tart, sweet and creamy flavor.

Cornbread is one of my favorite recipes.  I love how versatile it can be.  You can make a pan and have breakfasts, snacks, sides all week long.  It’s one of my favorite treats.  Topped with this over the top delicious cherry butter – amazing!

I used the reserved cherries from this Recipe to make the butter.  If you have not made the prosecco recipe, (you are truly missing out!) you could easily make the sweetened cherries before hand.  I have included the recipe for those below, as well.
