Soft Cornbread (Gluten Free)

I have to be honest, I am not a fan of most cornbread recipes.  Corn spoonbread, sign me up. 

But cornbread?  Usually too dry and crumbly to suit my tastes.

I've been working on a homemade and gluten-free cornbread recipe for weeks and finally came up with a version worth sharing.  And yes, it is gluten-free, but you can easily use all purpose flour instead of gluten-free flour.

As alert blog-reader Vicki messaged me, "are you guys gluten free now?"  No, not officially, but for various reasons we've been trying to do more gluten-free cooking and baking. 

This cornbread is so soft and moist, you won't miss the gluten!

Soft Cornbread (Gluten Free)

3/4 cup cornmeal
1 1/4 cup milk
1 cup gluten-free flour (all-purpose is fine if you don't need it to be GF)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal and milk.  Let sit for 5 minutes, stirring once or twice during this time (soaking the cornmeal allows it to soften, and is key to producing a soft cornbread).

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and sugar.  Stir well to mix.

After the cornmeal is done soaking, add the egg, vanilla extract and oil and stir well to fully combine.

Add the dry ingredients and mix for 2 minutes by hand.

Prepare either a 10 inch round cast iron skillet or a 9x9 glass baking dish by coating the bottom and sides with a touch of oil.

Pour the cornmeal batter into the skillet or dish and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out dry.

Makes 12 servings of delicious, soft, moist, not crumbly cornmeal.

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
