Roasted Corn Cornbread

I don’t think I have a good cornbread recipe on here, and I think it is about time that I changed that. This is a fairly straight forward one – it’s moist, slightly low fat (aka I used fat free yogurt to counter balance the butter, not sure if that truly counts, but it could…
