Carrot and Ginger Corn Bread
Adapted from Delicious Living Magazine
This gluten-free recipe has a fantastic texture and zippy ginger taste. Make-ahead tip: The uncooked batter keeps in the refrigerator for several days, so you can make fresh, hot muffins any time. Ingredient tip: Turbinado sugar is similar to brown sugar but with a coarser texture.
