Inside: The BEST Gluten-Free Cornbread Recipe

A stand-by. That’s what I call Cornbread. It’s easy to whip up and everyone loves it. And a cornbread recipe can easily convert to Gluten-Free Cornbread. Really, what’s not to love. It’s comfort food at its best.

The BEST Gluten-Free Cornbread Recipe

For years I’ve had this recipe for cornbread that made it more like corn-cake. It was sweet, moist, and bouncy. Not real crumbly like most cornbread. When I found out I could no longer eat gluten this recipe was one of the first that I converted to gluten-free. After numerous trials and cornbread disasters I have finally landed on a recipe that comes out perfect every time.

Cornbread from scratch is about as easy as it gets. Now I’m going to totally shock you. I.grind.my.own.cornmeal. Yep. I have a grain grinder and I use it to make my gluten-free flours ‘cuz they cost a fortune. I get organic dried corn and turn it into cornmeal. It has the most delicious corny taste. Enough about my obsessive behavior. Any trustworthy gluten-free brand of cornmeal will work.

For my all-purpose flour, I use Namaste Gluten-Free Perfect Blend Flour which includes xanthum gum. This gives the cornbread a springy-cake-like texture. If you are using a different GF All Purpose flour, just add 1/2 t. xanthem gum. These two items are available at most large grocery and health food stores.

Basically, all I do is add the dry ingredients, the wet ingredients, give it a stir, put it in a pan, and bake.

This recipe can easily be doubled. All you need to do is double all of the ingredients and pour them into a 9″ X 13″ baking pan then bake at 375-degrees for 25-30 minutes.
