Pizza Style Skillet Corn Bread / Baking Partners challenge


Hello Folks !!! 

Today’s recipe is a Pizza style skillet corn bread , a slight take on the regular corn bread . I have made this corn bread as part of Baking Partners challenge  . I was so excited when this month’s theme was a skillet corn bread, because I have always wanted to make it didn’t have a good chance for it . When this month’s challenge was corn bread I was super excited about it . I wanted to make something different unlike the regular sweet / savory corn breads . Instead  made a pizza style with tons of veggies in it , avoided using all purpose flour and made it egg less , exciting !!! 

I have used flax eggs here instead of regular eggs . You might be thinking what are flax eggs , they are nothing flax powder with water . One regular egg is equivalent to 1 tablespoon flax powder plus 3 tablespoons water. I also avoided using all purpose flour and used amaranth flour instead. 

Now let’s see how this delicious skillet corn bread is made
