gluten free cornbread recipe

This gluten free corn bread recipe is absolutely divine. The perfect comfort food for a wintery Melbourne day. The secret is not to over mix it.

I made the corn bread because I had a lot of left over polenta from a previous recipe and then for some reason I thought of cornbread which I have never made before. What a mistake! The next problem is deciphering between polenta and cornmeal.  

There is no difference between polenta and cornmeal. It is the same thing!  

Once I figured this out I went on a search for the prefect cornbread recipe and I found it. Think no more and get making this is such a pleasure to make and eat because it is so easy. I also loved using my skillet which I hadn't used in years. Another long lost pleasure found. I felt so old fashioned and I loved it hahaha.

It may look a little dry but it is absolute perfection when you eat it especially piping hot from the oven.

Spread some margarine over the top and drizzle with some maple syrup and you will be in heaven.

Gluten Free Cornbread

1 1/2 cups gluten free plain flour
1 1/2 cups fine polenta (corn meal - same thing)
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 x 60gm eggs
1 1/2 cups lactose free milk (buttermilk, whole milk, or almond milk work great)
6 tbsp dairy free margarine

Preheat oven to 200°C and grease a medium-sized cast-iron skillet (or 20 × 20 cm baking dish) with  margarine then place inside oven.

In a large mixing bowl add the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and whisk until well combined.

Melt the margarine then let it cool slightly while you whisk together the eggs and milk in a separate bowl. Once the margarine has cooled down a little add it to the wet ingredients.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir gently with a wooden spoon making sure not to over-mix. Just make sure all are just combined. This is the secret to making it light and fluffy.

Remove the heated skillet (or baking dish) from the oven and pour the batter in. Turn the oven down to 180°C and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Let the cornbread cool slightly then serve with dairy free margarine and any sweet condiment like maple syrup or honey for that maximum comfort food feeling!
