Buttermilk Cornbread

Store-bought bread is fine for making most kinds of bread stuffing, but for cornbread stuffing, I think it's best to make your own. This cornbread, adapted from a recipe by contributing editor Pam Anderson, is noteworthy because it doesn't call for any wheat flour, so it's bursting with corn flavor. Use it to make cornbread stuffing or serve it warm, slathered with butter and honey or maple syrup.
