Spinach & Cheese Cornbread

This spinach and cheese cornbread recipe is not only delicious but also very easy, fast and fail-proof. Served with some creamy ricotta, pepper jam or just a cup of yogurt it makes for wonderful breakfast or brunch. I used spinach this time because that’s what I had on hand, but other dark green leaves such as chard or kale work just as good (I’ve tried them all:)).
