“I just received this recipe in an email. I know what you're thinking because I did too...... one cup of olive oil? Being a lover of cornbread of any kind...and Ameretto : ) ...I just had to save the recipe to give it a try someday. To quote the description they gave......."This delicious cake has a hint of orange and a slightly crunchy texture from cornmeal, is moist without being greasy...". Cook time is 40-50 minutes.”
1 cake
