      I added this cornbread to my attempt at a low fat, low calorie, filling weeknight meal. It is an interesting cornbread, with slight pepper flavor from the one fresh jalapeno I chopped finely and used. Then you get the slight sweet from the pineapple; making this a palate pleaser! I will tuck this recipe away and pull it out when I'm bored of the same old, same old...Thanks for sharing, Jademoon. Made for Spring PAC 2011 -
