If you’ve asked, “Is Cornbread gluten free”? Now it is! You’ll love this gluten free cornbread recipe…
(If you are fine eating grains, we love this recipe. I add an extra 2 Tablespoons of sugar, though, and I also use Einkorn flour. I also make it with just milk instead of buttermilk. It’s moist and delicious and soooo good with more butter on top after it comes out of the oven!)
Our neighbor friend, Michelle, is known for her delicious cornbread. One day I found this mix and thought I’d try a gluten free version. It’s really moist and tasty, and I call it “cornbread cake” because it’s just a little bit sweet, plus the kids were more excited to try it that way.
- 1 1/2 sticks of butter, melted — pastured butter is best for the most nutrients (Butter is a health food, oh yes it is! Read more here.)
- 1 1/2 cup cream or part whole milk and part cream — again, pastured dairy is best
- 3 eggs (Click here to scroll down and read all of my posts about eggs and why they’re so good for us!)
- 1/3 c. natural sugar — I used palm sugar (Read all about sugar: the good, bad and the disgusting)
- 3/4 tsp. sea salt (To salt your food or not to salt your food?)
- GF cornbread mix – 20 oz.
- 2 1/2 cups corn (I used frozen)
In medium saucepan (I use stainless steel) melt the butter, and then take it off the heat. Whisk in the cream/milk, and then the eggs, sugar, and salt. Stir in the cornbread mix, just until it’s mixed in, and then the corn. Spread into a buttered 9×13 ceramic or glass baking dish.
Bake at 350* until top is set and it’s all golden brown. About 55 minutes.
Serve with plenty of pastured butter — yum!
NOTE: Because I like experimenting, next time I plan to try it without the mix and substitute baking powder, organic cornmeal, and either some einkorn flour OR a gluten-free flour depending on who is eating with us. I’ll keep you posted.
Let me know if you try it!
