My friend, Nancy, sent me this recipe as well as some of the ingredients so that I could try it. I was so surprised at how much it tastes like my high carb cornbread. The soy grits give it just the right texture and the hazelnut flour and Carbquik seem to mimic the flavor of cornmeal. You can order hazelnut flour through Netrition and soy grits through the Bob's Red Mill website.

UPDATE: I suggest checking your cornbread after 15 minutes. The last time I made some it got a little dark in 19 minutes. Also, soy grits are now available through Netrition.

UPDATE: 15 minutes was just right. It browned on top and didn't get overbaked.
