This gluten-free cornbread is simply delicious, and it’s easy to make dairy free. Gluten-free and gluten eaters alike will enjoy this with a bowl of chili on a cold fall evening. Since I first posted this recipe in 2008, I thought it was time to bring it back to the forefront.
I think corn bread qualifies as a comfort food. It’s just, well, comforting. If you’re on a gluten-free diet, you have to be careful about corn bread mixes. They usually contain wheat. However, gluten-free corn bread can be easily prepared from scratch almost as quickly.
Some people like a really sweet corn bread and others don’t. Adjust the amount of sugar in this recipe to suit your tastes.
