Gluten-free cornbread in a cast iron pan

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup of Yellow Cornmeal
  • 2/3 Cup of Granulated Sugar

Cast Iron Gluten-Free Cornbread Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9 inch cast iron skillet and place in the oven while it is warming up.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, cornmeal, and baking powder. Next, make a well and add the oil, milk, and egg. Stir until the mixture comes together. A few small clumps are okay.

Take out the preheated cast iron skillet and pour in the cornbread batter. The oil in the pan will show around the top edges of the batter and this is just fine.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. The cornbread should be golden brown on top and pull slightly away from the edges of the pan.

Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes in the pan, slice, and serve.

To store the cornbread, you can leave it in the cast iron pan for a few days with a cover. However since this bread is so moist, it is best on day 3 to transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the fridge. If you leave it on the counter for too long, mold will start to grow.

Make Your Cornbread Dairy Free

This recipe can easily be made dairy free if needed. Because I use olive oil in this recipe, the only adjustment needed to make it dairy free is to change out what you use for milk. I prefer to use original almond milk to replace the one cup of milk, but you could use coconut, oat, or soy milk as well.
