Savory

It's not secret that I love to bake. In fact, I'm sure I can only attempt to make every version of banana muffins or quick bread before I (finally) run out of ideas. Luckily, today I was craving something totally different in baked form...
Cornbread.
I don't know where the craving came from. I had tofu and falafel on the menu for dinner tonight, and obviously the first thing you think of as an accompaniment is delicious, fluffy cornbread. Right??

No matter, I found an outstanding recipe on Daily Garnish for White Cheddar Yogurt Cornbread. With a few tweaks (hello goat cheese, parmesan, and nutritional yeast!) I give you...
"Three" Cheese Cornbread

Delicious cornbread made fluffy with greek yogurt, hints of parmesan,
goat cheese, and nutritional yeast. Enjoy with a swipe of butter and try not
to eat the pan before your husband gets home...

1 cup corn (I used frozen)

1/4 cup sugar (I used splenda baking)
3 TBSP nutritional yeast
1 cup Greek yogurt (I used 0% TJ's)
1/4 cup butter (I used Smart Balance Lt)
2 eggs (I used 2 egg beaters)
1/4 cup milk (I used unswt soy)

1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
parmesan cheese for topping
