Corn Bread

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.

This recipe can also be used to make corn dog mini muffins.  Bake them at 375° for 10 minutes.

    Absolutely a comfort food for me!! There isn’t much better than cornbread and homemade chili! That would be perfect this weekend! Nice post! Your picture is lovely!

  2. Jessica says:

    I'm making this tonight! I'm using Bob's Red Mill cornmeal. It's odd to me that the recipe on the package isn't GF… oh well.

  3. Leona Brist Pipgras says:

    Bob's Red Mill cornmeal is Gluten Free, and it is in a dedicated facility. I have went through the facility. They have also just recently enlarged there gluten free faciltiy…You can order online with them also. Thanks for the corn bread recipe, I'm going to give it a try…Leona

  4. Helen K says:

    This corn bread is absolutely the best! Thanks for the recipe, I totally enjoyed it!

  5. I made these tonight using Bob’s Red Mill corn meal. I’m out of potato starch so I used corn starch instead. And we have a milk allergy so I substituted rice milk and it was great in the cast iron skillet!

  6. Lisa Bunce says:

    I tried the recipe last night using Pamela’s baking mix in place of flour/starch, baking soda and salt. It turned out great! Was a little more crumbly than regular corn bread (from what I remember anyways! It’s been awhile), but it was still super yummy!

  7. Beverly says:

    I made this tonight to go with Taco Soup. So, so very good!

  8. Do u have nutritional info? Like how many carbs a serving?

    • Sorry, but no I don’t have the nutritional information.

      If you join you can input any recipe you want into the nutrition tracker, and it calculates everything for you. It’s really quite amazing and a site I sometimes take for granted, but I cannot say enough about what they do for anyone trying to be more health conscious in one way or another and it’s free.

  9. Karen Craft says:

    Instead of using milk and sugar add a can of creamed corn. Punches up the corn taste in the bread.

  10. Allison Stankovic says:

    Ive just made my own recipe for Gf Cornbread as I’m a Coelica as well as lactose and sucrose intolerance. I also didnt want to have to use so many different flours. I also put Chai seeds in mine to. It turned out so light and fluffy its been a bonus that my son loved it to…
